JOHNSTON, IOWA — We’re inside the debate. Check out the picture at right to see how we got here.
Why did we do it? To illustrate the antiquated reason, an 1845 federal law, that determines why Americans choose the President of the United States the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, a day smack in the middle of the workweek.
We’re now in the press filing center of the debate, which is almost over. Not surprisingly, not a peep about the state of our voting system. We’ll try and catch up with the remaining candidates who haven’t responded to our Candidate Challenge after the debate.
