Candidate Challenge: Hillary Clinton
Thursday, November 15th, 2007
Right now Senator Hillary Clinton is on stage at the CNN Democratic Debate, but earlier she took time to become the latest presidential candidate to respond to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge. That brings the total number of candidates to respond and discuss the state of our voting system to 13 out of 16! Senator Clinton’s plan for election reform is largely based on the Count Every Vote Act, which she introduced to Congress.
Senator Clinton says she believes Election Day should be a National Holiday, she wants a rejection of “extreme” voter ID requirements and a specific criteria for the number of voting machines per precinct, and a federal program for training poll workers, amongst other proposals.
