Why Tuesday?

Get Involved

Greetings from Charleston, South Carolina (* updated)

Sunday, July 22nd, 2007

Hey, it’s Jacob. Just arrived in South Carolina for the CNN/YouTube presidential debate which is taking place at the Citadel tomorrow night. I have no clue if our question will be picked but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that either way the candidates will spend some time talking about election reform. Even if the question isn’t picked, I’ll be in the spin room with my video camera for the post debate activities and will be sure to ask some tough questions.

Speak out: Don’t forget, we’re in the process of putting together a documentary video series about our broken election system that will launch in the fall and air at whytuesday.org. We want to hear your stories about adventures or misadventures at the polls, so drop us a line!

* Monday update: I’m at the Citadel in the press filing center. It’s quiet around here… for now.

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
