“Date Blamed for Low Vote in [New York] Primaries”

And really, if you read the NY Times article, the MOVE Act is apparently being blamed for the date change, which is being blamed for 5% turnout on Tuesday — less than the 7% turnout for New York’s presidential primary.

Make no mistake: whatever the cause, the solution has to involve efforts to better inform voters, rather than critique of the decision to schedule elections so that servicemembers can effectively participate.
