Saturday night at the Iowa GOP’s Reagan Dinner in Des Moines, Iowa I had a chance to catch up with California Congressman Duncan Hunter and ask him to respond to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge, which he did. Continuing a similar refrain we’ve heard from the candidates, Hunter says “the best way to get voters to turn out is to inspire them.” Hunter also supports the use of paper ballots to ensure the security of votes. He also wants to stick with Tuesday Election Day.

    Seeing the older videos next to the newer ones helps me notice the improved production quality of the new videos. I notice the leading and trailing music and appreciate it. Good job!

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.
