Election Day is a holiday in many other countries. It should be in the US, as well. It would increase turnout and make it easier for people to vote, particularly those who otherwise might struggle to take the time away from work.
Problems to be Solved
- Many American workers must choose between making enough money to pay their bills and voting on election day.
- Many American workers aren’t allowed to take time off on election day.
As President, I will…
- Make election day a federal holiday.
- Provide tax breaks to employers equivalent to total wages paid to workers who are given paid time off to vote.
