When will YOU vote? *

Monday, November 26th, 2007


The folks at the great Pew project electionline.org have a fantastic new feature up that I noticed this morning. It’s an Election Day calendar that, ironically, is nine months long! The first voting for president starts January 3, 2008 with the Iowa Caucus, and the “primary season” ends September 20th in Hawaii. Click here for our past coverage of why the primary election season is getting longer and longer, and what it means for you.

* Update: Sorry, I misread the above calendar. June 3rd is the last day for voting in presidential primaries. That’s in Montana, New Mexico (R) and South Dakota. Hawaiians vote in their state primary in September. Sheesh, how much more confusing could it get? Honestly, a six month versus nine month primary election season ain’t much better.

    Why does New Mexico Republicans vote in June and the Democrats vote in February?
