      A President can declare a federal holiday via Executive Order which makes me curious as to why one already hasn't done so. It'd only take 1 person less than 5 minutes and it'd be a whole lot faster and easier than getting all 535 members of Congress to sit down and agree to it.

      Because Election Day should be a source of pride and not having it be a holiday disenfranchises working class citizens who have to wait in line to vote after work.
