Most people paying any attention know when Super Tuesday is? February 5. But many people have more trouble explaining what the day actually represents and entails and why the day has grown so important.

The youth voter group, Why Tuesday?, established to make election reform an issue that our elected pols can’t keep ignoring, has created a new video which helps explain the history of America’s crazy primary season, details the interests behind the recent front-loading of the electoral calendar, and offers advice for citizens looking for ways to upgrade US democratic practice.

After watching, check out the Fix the Primaries site for creative solutions to America’s electoral dysfunction. The ideas are out there. Our challenge is build a movement sufficiently powerful to push them on to the national agenda.
