Weekend Voting, Made Pretty
Tuesday, April 17th, 2012
We’ve again partnered with Participant Media’s TakePart to produce this awesome infographic about why voting on Tuesday (instead of the weekend) is just plain silly, and how Tuesday voting contributes to America’s terrible voter turnout.
Our big question:
Are Americans Doing It Wrong?
Obviously, yes! We sorted through all of the data we have collected over the years to make the best case, in the most visually pleasing way possible, for moving Election Day to the weekend. International elections, voter turnout stats, census data and even a little history thrown in. It’s all there!
This infographic is part of Participant’s new TakePart on Tuesday 2012 election coverage. There’s lots more to come from there. But first, take a look at the red, white and blue beauty and let us know what you think!
