Pelosi, Gore on Weekend Voting Act
Saturday, July 19th, 2008
Today at the Netroots Nation conference in Austin, Texas, I spoke with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, former Vice President Al Gore, and U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett about the proposal in Congress to move Election Day to Saturday and Sunday. Check out the video.
Pelosi: “I think it’s a great idea.”
Gore: “Good idea, sounds like.”
Last week we spent time with U.S. Representative Steve Israel (D-NY), who introduced the Weekend Voting Act into the House. Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI) introduced the bill into the Senate in February.
