Make Election Day a National Holiday!

Problem

Reduced voter turnout and efforts to suppress voter turnout are increased by not having election day a national holiday.

Facts

America has lower voter turnout in presidential elections than all but three developed countries.

Solution

Force congress to pass legislation to make election day a national holiday

Action

Take a paid time off or sick day on Election day. If you have paid time off that you can use, inform the company that you work for that you will be taking off Election day in 2020, Tuesday November, 3. If enough of society takes the day off in unified protest, businesses will also take up the cause that a national holiday is required as it will be come a de facto holiday and they must deal with the overhead of scheduling and finding those that will agree to work on that day.
