Thursday, July 24th, 2008

In late June I first had the opportunity to meet Lindsay Campbell and her colleagues from the CBS Interactive news vlog MobLogic.tv at Personal Democracy Forum 2008 in New York City. We chatted briefly about voter participation and it made it into the July 4th episode of MobLogic.

Later that week I headed from Midtown, NYC to the streets of NoLita, NYC to check out their base of operations and talk more with Lindsay about the state of our voting system, what we do here at Why Tuesday?, and how it’s making election reform an issue our elected officials cannot afford to avoid. Check it out, and follow them on Twitter. And follow us on Twitter while you’re at it!

And one more thing — if you’re new here, meet our latest correspondent, U.S. Representative Steve Israel, sponsor of the Weekend Voting Act in the House of Representatives. Well, two more things. Why do we vote on Tuesday? Here’s the answer.
