Dear President Obama,
It's clear that voter "ID" laws are really voter suppression, and we know whose votes they are designed to suppress: The very people we believe will give you a second term -- which you deserve and the country needs! Please consider ordering that every first Tuesday in November will be a federal holiday. This action will improve participation in democracy and may even save American Democracy from extinction, now that it is endangered by Citizens United.

I think voting is a constitutional right and some people can't get time off of work to vote.

Because if voting is made more accessible, then more people vote. The more people vote, the better democracy works. It's a no brainer. Also, by making voting day a National Holiday we give it more significance, importance, & respect. Future generations will just know that on Voting Day Holiday, they go vote...because it's what Americans do....like fireworks on the 4th of July.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Voting is not only a right, but a responsibility. And there should be no obstruction, including one's job.

Because SC's governor is trying to limit participation and I think voting is important.

We should make Election Day a national holiday. It's important for all citizens to be able to have a say in our political process!
