Just watched a Last Week Tonight episode, that ended with Oliver asking why is voting on a Tuesday still a thing? Turns out, it's (in part) due to religious reasons (the Sabbath). And we have yet to change the logic of scheduling with election day voting.
He also brought up something I don't think I have heard before, but I am sure has been brought up several times in the past.. we should make election day voting a national holiday. That way we can maximize the voter turnout and make it easier for people with 9-5 office or service jobs.
He also recommended having multiple voting days, or perhaps moving the day of voting to the weekend, all with the same goal in mind, raising voter turnout.
I think this is a great idea. And unlike most holidays, we obviously wouldn't have to 'celebrate' it every year. Just every 2 years, because honestly voting for congressional positions and local government is just as, if not more important, anyhow.
