Know why we vote on Tuesday? Neither does Obama's Voting Commission


When thinking about improving voter turnout, the top of the list, 100% obvious choice, has always been to implement weekend voting, multiple day voting, or at least ask the question: Why do we vote on Tuesdays? In fact, the Why Tuesday organization has been asking that very question for years.

So when the President's Support the Voter commission launched their website this week, I just assumed "voting day" would be at the top of the list.

The commission is considering 11 different voting issues, and NONE of them deal with day of the week. Oh well, if you work on Tuesdays like most normal people, guess you're still out of luck. But at least the commission is going to work hard on "efficient management of voter rolls and poll books."
