Election Day is fundamentally the most important day in our nation. EVERY person who lives here is affected by Election Day.  Millions of voters cast their votes and millions more struggle to get to the voting booth before or after work. Add to the daily struggle of life and you have millions of voices going unheard on this important day. How can we help get these voices heard? YOUR voices heard? Have you ever had to wait in line to vote? Have you seen the news reports on Election Day citing the long waits for some polling locations? Sometimes the wait can be over 8 hours! 8 hours!! To cast your vote?! Wouldn’t it be great to have a whole day off, so the community can go and vote throughout the day, without fear of jamming the majority of voters in line before or after work. 

Why not make Election Day an American National Holiday? What’s more American than casting your vote for our leaders? We make changes in our local communities, counties, states, and nation via voting! Wouldn’t it be great to have a 90% voter turnout to get the voice of your community heard? By making it a National Holiday you allow more people to vote, and you might get more people to educate themselves on the candidates. Education is the key to our nation moving forward, allowing us to continue to be a leader to the rest of the world. 

Let’s be the America we need to be. Let’s get the voters to the polls and make all our voices heard. Let’s make Election Day a National Holiday.
