TOO many people don't vote, a very sad commentary on the state of our democracy. If making election day a federal holiday boost voter turnout for all political parties I'm all for it. We have nothing to loose by giving this a try, and if Pres Obama declares, by executive order, election day, 8 NOV 16, a federal holiday the results might motivate congress to make each national election day a federal holiday.

the petition by Daily Kos and allies urging that President Obama make
Election Day 2016 a federal holiday. Click here to sign.
Our democracy is in crisis, with voter turnout at an abysmal low. And with the Supreme Court gutting the Voting Rights Act in 2013, things are only getting worse.
But there is one simple thing President Obama can do: He can sign an executive order to make Election Day 2016 a federal holiday, like it already is in so many other countries.
Sign the petition by Daily Kos and other allies in demanding that we make Election Day a federal holiday.
