Samuel Santos started this petition to Mark B. Rosenburg and

In a country where only about 60% of the eligible voting population goes out to vote, we must make a conscious effort to increase that number as well as the number of people engaging in non-presidential election years which tends to be even lower (around 53%). 

When voter fraud is rampant, and we have elected officials going out of their way to make sure that it is more difficult to vote instead of the opposite we must do our part to make sure that one of our most important duties as citizens is protected. 

I truly believe that making this change in a meaningful and effective way begins in our communities, which is why I'm so passionate about making election day a University holiday at Florida International University. 

FIU is home to over 50,000 students from all over the world. One of the things that makes FIU unique is that most of our students are commuters. Most of them also work full or part-time and many have families to take care of. 

I believe that Election day should be a national holiday, but at a place like FIU it is especially important to make voting as easy and accessible as possible. If you agree with me and believe that every student at FIU should have the ability to vote with as little obstacles as possible sign this petition and share it with everyone in our community.
