Exciting news! Our collective hard work to increase voter participation in the United States is paying off!

As you may have read this morning in the New York Times, the grassroots movement Why Tuesday? San Francisco is launching today to create a Saturday Election Day in their city! Their idea is to add a Saturday Election Day to the already-existing Tuesday voting to make voting as accessible and convenient as possible. But they can’t do it without you!

The proposal needs thousands of signatures to make it on the ballot, and they can’t make it happen without you!

In the words of U.S. Representative Steve Israel, who has twice introduced the Weekend Voting Act into the House of Representatives, “the best way to know if this is effective is to go ahead and do it. And if San Francisco can go ahead and do it, it could provide the hard data for the rest of the country.”
