The polls in my state are open 13 hours, and as long as you are in line when they officially close, you still vote. In addition, anyone who believed they would be unable to vote in person could apply to absentee vote, so there's no reason not to vote. What I'm saying is in response to the "national holiday" movement - those who might currently have issues getting to the polls are the same people who'd have to work that holiday anyway. Most employers make allowances for voting, either letting people off early if needed, or to come in later - a National holiday isn't going to make voting easier or more likely.
