Why Tuesday? on FOX News
Thursday, February 23rd, 2012
Earlier this morning I joined host Jonathan Hunt on his FOX News “On The Hunt” program to talk about Why Tuesday? and the work we’re doing to try and increase American voter participation.
We spent nearly ten minutes talking about how absurd it is that the United States still, 167 years after Tuesday Election Day was picked to make voting convenient for an agrarian society traveling by horse-and-buggy, that we vote in the middle of the work week. We had a laugh when I said this to the host:
I do not often travel by horse and buggy in 2012, Jonathan, and I’d imagine you don’t either.
Throughout the conversation Jonathan read viewer questions and feedback from the FOXNews.com online audience, including comments about voting online, voter ID and more. You can watch our complete conversation here.
