    I donít know about making it a federal holiday, but early voting should be available to everyone.

    Why not a Federal Holiday? Or have it on a Saturday.
    Holiday is better - everyone should have the right to vote and it should be made as easy for them to do so as reasonably possible.
    This country (Republicans) has done, and still wants to do, the exact opposite.
    The more people that vote, the harder the hill Republicans have to climb to win. They donít want and have never wanted a level playing field, when it comes to elections.

    Um pretty some of them vote during the week and it is a national holiday. It's not like someone working jobs to make ends meet doesn't work on weekends. So that doesn't really solve anything.

    It would be a vast improvement, but not a problem-solver like a holiday.
    But we have to change everything about the way we vote in this country, so Iím down with even incremental changes at this point. We just have to do something.

    I wonder how many people getting the day off would actually go vote.

    A holiday would be great, but have to make sure somehow that workers who can't take the day off still have the opportunity to vote. Of course, most nurses, doctors, fire fighters, police that I know find a way to vote anyway, but still. The grocery workers and gas station attendants might find it more challenging.

    Voting is not hard; voting intelligently apparently is.

    Voting is not hard or difficult for most of us, but I understand there have been many different methods used to make voting more difficult for some.

    Anybody that works in retail or restaraunt does not get federal holidays. Pretty sure most cable companies still work on holidays. Hospitals do for sure. This proposal to make it a holiday does not help get alot of people time to vote. Honestly they should just make it last several days so if you cannot get off on Tuesday, maybe you can find time on wednesday.

    i think that is the best option. the past few years, we have had 2-3 weeks of early voting here in georgia.

    Voting is not hard. Placing good candidates on the ballot...now that is apparently very hard.
