Reagan Filing Center

SIMI VALLEY, CALIFORNIA — Hi there from the hills of Simi Valley where Team Why Tuesday? is here to cover the CNN/Politico/Los Angeles Times Republican presidential debate. The debate starts at 8PM EST, so until then we’ll be tooling around seeing who we can talk to and what we can uncover about the state of our voting system.

All the buzz in the filing center now is about Mayor Giuliani (who has not responded to our Candidate Challenge) and Senator McCain (who has responded). Giuliani is seemingly set to endorse McCain about 100 yards from where we’re sitting in 15 minutes. Check CNN if you want the play-by-play on that.

Stay tuned here for more updates throughout the afternoon and evening about what people here think about the state of America’s voting system, and what we all can do to increase participation nationwide.

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.
