CBS: Time to stop voting Tuesdays?
Monday, December 5th, 2011
I was at the CBS News Broadcast Center in New York last week to talk about our push to move Election Day to Saturday and Sunday to increase turnout. I sat down with senior political reporter Brian Montopoli and told him why we think it’s time to upgrade our voting system.
In 2011, coming onto 2012, we will be voting on a day and in a way that was set for an agrarian society 160-something years ago. Frankly it literally is just silly that we’re still voting on this day when so many Americans are working two jobs, don’t necessarily have time to make it to the polls before or after work.
Watch the complete interview and let us know what you think.
