NPR Tape Recorder

A warm welcome to those of you that made your way here by way of NPR’s Day to Day (audio here). Thanks to Alex Cohen, producer Ben Bergman, and the rest of the show’s team for having me into NPR West last week to talk about our mission: making America’s democracy stronger through increased voter participation. We’re working to do this by making election reform an issue that our politicians cannot afford to avoid.

If you’re new here, visit our support page to learn about what you can do to help push an open and honest conversation about the state of America’s voting system. The fastest way to support Why Tuesday? is to watch this 40 second video, click the green thumbs up button, and vote to have the presidential candidates address the state of our voting system. You have the power to make election reform a national priority thanks to our friends at 10Questions.

Here’s the link to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge. Got something to say? Contact us or leave a comment below.

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.
