house Bill H.R. 3910

Moving Election Day to the Weekend

Argument in favor

Tuesday voting is outdated and makes it difficult for many Americans to vote, especially students, seniors, and low-income people.

Yes, AND make it a holiday. Plenty of people still work on the weekends, and they need to vote, too.

Like Vermont, election days should be national holidays. We must increase access to elections in order to restore our democracy.

Argument opposed

Switching Election Day would confuse voters and introduce logistical problems, like finding election officials willing to work on the weekend.

It doesn't matter what day of the week it is. Election day should be a federal holiday.

Many people with lower income work retail, which usually includes weekends. It needs to be a national holiday. A widely celebrated event.

This isn't going to make it any easier for those who have to work on weekends, less privileged. Should be a federal holiday.
