Greetings to all of the election reformers in Pittsburgh at Netroots Nation 2009. I’m sorry we can’t be there with you like we were last year when I was on the grassroots video panel and we brought you vlogs Al Gore, Nancy Pelosi and even Bob Barr. But it sounds like, from monitoring the #nn09 hashtag on Twitter, that there’s lots of great stuff going on, including talk about election reform. Even California Secretary of State (and election reformer and veteran of the Why Tuesday? vlog) Debra Bowen spoke to NN09 (pictured above) We can’t wait to hear all about it. Be sure to send us updates in case were missing anything. But we’re watching from afar!

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.
