We’re Nominated For A Golden Dot!

I just got back from South by Southwest in Austin and found out some great news!

Why Tuesday? has been nominated for a “Golden Dot Award” by the George Washington University Institute for Politics, Democracy and the Internet!

The Golden Dot Awards recognize achievement in online politics. To be eligible, nominees must have used the Internet to try to influence the political process between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2008. We are nominated for Best Vlog for our work trying to find solutions to increase voter participation and turnout in our elections — and you can help us win!

Winners will be announced on Thursday, April 16, and the winners will be honored at the 2009 Politics Online Conference (April 20 – 21). (more…)

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
