Sheryl Crow is so over this election that she's petitioning to shorten the election cycle


Singer Sheryl Crow, like so many other Americans, is ready for the 2016 presidential campaign to come to an end. 

Crow currently has a petition on change.org asking the Democratic and Republican National Committees to reform the process and shorten the election season. 

When Americans head to the polls on Nov. 8, the 2016 election will have lasted nearly 600 days, according to Time magazine

WATCH | Sheryl Crow explains why she is petitioning for a shorter election season 

We've not learned much more in two years than we could have learned in six months to a year.
Sheryl Crow told USA Today

"Countries across the globe have limited campaign seasons to as short as 6 weeks. With an organized system, a successful, informative, professional campaign could be run," Crow wrote in the petition.  

Time notes that Canada's longest campaign season in recent history lasted just 11 weeks. 

"No one benefits from two years of this. It certainly hasn't been informative," Crow told USA Today Monday. "I would like to see a shorter campaign that's more efficient, that focuses on the issues, that becomes less motivated by the ratings."

As of Tuesday afternoon, the petition had garnered more than 34,000 signatures. 

Crow hasn't publicly announced who she is voting for this year, but she is a long-time Democrat and sang the national anthem ahead of a Democratic Party debate in 2015.
