Why Tuesday?

Get Involved

Welcome, CBS Early Show Viewers


Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

Greetings to those of you who made your way here by way of the CBS Early Show. As that little red box up to the right says, Why Tuesday? is an effort to make America’s democracy stronger through increased voter participation. We work to make election reform an issue that our politicians cannot afford to avoid. There are many ways you can join our efforts.

If this is your first visit to our site, check out the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge; 13 of the original 16 presidential candidates have talked with us and answered this question: is our voting system broken? Most think it is, in some way. Stay involved by subscribing to our videos on YouTube, becoming a Why Tuesday? Correspondent, or by checking us out around the web.

And feel free to contact us at any time.
