This short video has the answer — and the answer just may surprise you (hint: it’s a really old law and it has nothing to do with a Constitutional mandate).
Time For A Change?
Several groups seeking to make U.S. elections fairer say many of our election laws should be updated to reflect the modern era. Laws that made sense years ago — like the law that has us voting on Tuesdays — no longer apply. If we want to increase voter participation the traditions should be abolished, they say.
Some of the reforms being suggested include:
- Weekend Voting
- National Popular Vote for President
- Publically Funded Elections
- Abolish Closed Primary System
