Sure, but remember that a federal holiday does not guarantee that the private sector won't have to work, same as any Tuesday. Also, schools would be closed, placing an added burden to care takers who would otherwise work/vote during school hours. Come to think of it, many OTHER things need to be addressed for voting numbers to increase. I'm concerned that making voting day a federal holiday won't make a significant impact in this area, and that if this is the reason for the bill it will be wasted time & attention from more pressing issues on voting matters. On the other hand, we could put something in the bill to get rid of Columbus Day... just sayin.
