Why Tuesday? is a non-partisan, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2005 to find solutions to increase voter turnout and participation in elections. Our documentary video blog featured interviews about the state of America’s broken voting system with both 2008 presidential nominees and has been seen millions of times across multiple online and traditional media platforms, including national and international news outlets.

Watch this report from producer John Carluccio for Current TV for a recap of the candidates we caught up with and to learn how we did it. The piece aired on TV, online and on Virgin America flights.

To watch our original vlogs and see the extended versions of what 13 of the 16 2008 presidential candidates think about our broken voting system, check out the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge.

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.
