Why Tuesday?

Get Involved

Welcome TPM’ers

Monday, October 15th, 2007


A warm welcome to those of you that have made your way here by way of TPMCafe. We’ve been invited to guest blog about election reform all week at TPM’s Table for One, and we’re honored to have the opportunity.

If you’re new to Why Tuesday?, here are a few places to start: check out who we are, what we do, and watch previous episodes of our weekly documentary vlog; every Tuesday we post a new episode. Also, check out how we’re holding the 2008 presidential candidates feet to the fire about election reform. If that’s not enough, get published as a Why Tuesday? correspondent – all it takes is a video camera and some gumption. Any questions, let us know.

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.
