Election Day Holiday

Why can’t we make our Presidential Election Day a national paid-holiday every 4 years? If needed, I bet even MLK Jrs family wouldn’t mind swapping out MLK day every 4 years to make the Election Day a National Holiday. This would be a way to increase voter turnout, especially for blue collar/Democratic/younger workers/students.

It seems too obvious of a thing to do (Europe does it), so why not ‘the most democratic nation in the world’? The presidential election is the most important day of the year, and certainly more important of this farse that we call Thanksgiving
