Cedar Rapids

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA — There probably will not be a Tuesday episode this week because we’re on the road. Instead, we’ll continue to roll out the rest of the videos of 2008 presidential candidates who have responded to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge and discussed in a video response – or with me – their feelings about the state of our voting system.

Video you can look forward to this week: in Iowa we caught up with Mike Huckabee, Tom Tancredo, Duncan Hunter, Fred Thompson… and we’ve got both Mike Gravel and Dennis Kucinich on tape too. Which candidate that we met chose not to discuss voting in America? Stay tuned to find out.

For the candidates who have not yet responded: the deadline is tomorrow, October 31st. Don’t be one of the only candidates who is too busy to respond to this important issue. Is you candidate missing from our list? Click on their image on the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge page and send them a note telling them to respond!

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.
