Interesting. Iíll have to see if my kids have it off, this is the first Iíve heard of it. I donít think itís a big deal either way. I mean with all the crazy weíve had this year taking Election Day off from school doesnít even register on the scale lol.

Are they using the school as a polling place? Some areas do.

Should be a universal day off, a national day off for voting, no excuses, get tired of hearing about how it's not possible to vote any more, its simply ridiculous.

No you don't get paid for it, you suffer what you cast your vote for, either its a good vote or its a bad one, do you due diligence and get educated before the day to vote !

VOTE and I hope you sent a few dollars to your favorite choice. It is VERY expensive to run for office.....jk

A lot of schools are polling places, that may be why they have the day off.

If they'd run just a few more political ads I'm sure folks would be well educated on who to vote for. frown

should move to primarily in person or in person drop off only elections , with very limited absentee voting and make it a national holiday that Everyone has off


probably would have fewer people voting with absolutely no excuse , it would be interesting

should also make it easier to get poll workers who are not well past retirement age

a strong republic is build on participation in governance

the military vote should be staffed by volunteer poll workers from the base ,with forward operating bases and in field personnel being the only ones voting absentee and their ballots should be counted by the base they are deployed from poll workers the idea that service men and women votes are being trusted to show up on time through the mail is not right.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

The inmates in prison cant be let out to vote-they have to vote by mail in.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Election day should be the FIRST holiday off, then fit in some of the others.
