Candidate Challenge: Herman Cain
Wednesday, November 16th, 2011
Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain has submitted the first video response to the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge. Two weeks ago we asked all of the 2012 candidates, including President Obama, as we did in 2008, to send us a video with their ideas for increasing America’s low voter participation.
As you’ll see in Mr. Cain’s video, he specifically answers our question about whether or not he believes the American voting system is broken. Mr. Cain says he does not believe the American voting system is broken.
Mr. Cain acknowledges, however, America’s low voter turnout in his response. “More people need to participate,” he says, “in order to enhance the integrity as well as to better represent the voice of the people.” One of the fixes Mr. Cain says he’d like to see to “improve the integrity of our system,” is “requiring picture IDs” for voters. Watch the video for his complete answer.
Stay tuned here for more candidate responses. There are only twelve days before the deadline for responses.
