Why Tuesday? Update


Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

NEW YORK, NEW YORK — Last time I posted a video message to YouTubers it was the end of the summer, and we were getting ready to launch this very website. Well, it’s the dead of winter, and now, four months after our relaunch, here we are. Consider this video a progress report, and a look ahead.

It’s been a good run since our relaunch September 25th. 13 of the 16 candidates for president, and all of the candidates still in the race, responded to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge. We’ve traveled the country looking at the best and worst practices in our voting system. And we’ve reached out across the internet to increase the volume of the conversation about our voting system.

Much more fun ahead. If you’re new here, subscribe to our videos on YouTube and stay involved.
