Its easy for me to take half a day and go vote, but some of the hourly guys I work with are often expected to put in 12 hours routinely. Not everyone gets the same freedoms and because of situations like that, I support it being a holiday.
They could take a V day...... or... ask their supervisor to let them go vote.... or... ask their supervisor to let them have a longer lunch break so they can go vote..... or..... ask to get off work early to go vote.... or... go to the polling station to vote before they go home....or hell even call in sick to vote. Not to mention there is "early voting" in many places up to like a week or at least 5 days before the "election day".
See, plenty of options, we don't a holiday that many folks will just take advantage of.
