I’d rather see extended/early voting with mail-in (paper for a security trail!) ballots. Even if we had a national election day holiday, we’d still need people as emergency responders, election judges, transit drivers, people who make sure our power and water still work, child day care providers, and so on. How would they be able to vote on election day? Are we only going to schedule permanent residents to work shifts on election day? Will such essential workers be limited to half-day shifts, so we’ll need twice as many?
