Why Isn't Election Day A Holiday?
Tuesday isn't exactly a convenient day for most people to vote.By Kate Grumke | November 4, 2016
U.S. voter turnout is super low. We're 31st out of 35 nations a part of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development when you look at turnout among the voting age population. Only about 53.6 percent of the voting age population votes.
Of those who registered but didn't vote in 2014, 35 percent had work or school conflicts.
Which begs the question: Why don't we get a day off from work and school to vote?
