Candidate Challenge: Dennis Kucinich


Friday, December 21st, 2007

Dennis Kucinich, like Mike Gravel, responded to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge at the CNN/YouTube debate in South Carolina this summer. And also like Gravel (and Edwards and Huckabee), Kucinich doubles up on his response to the Candidate Challenge by way of 10Questions.

Congressman Kucinich endorses weekend voting in his video. He also calls for election transparency by adopting paper ballots instead of direct recording electronic machines. In the video Kucinich says he is asked about the issue of election integrity just as often as any other question on the trail. Shocking, isn’t it?

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.
