By all accounts, today’s presidential election could see record voter turn-outs. That’s great news! It disgusts me to think there are American’s who fore-go their fought-and-died-for right to cast a vote for any and all elections.
Seeing the long lines on news broadcasts and at local polling stations leads me once more to ask, “Why is Election Day not a national holiday?”
If today were a holiday, the majority of us wouldn’t have to work, there would be more available volunteers for polling stations, shorter lines, and (possibly) more people would cast a vote. Why has this not already happened? At the very least, the presidential election should become a holiday!
So, if it were, would you host an election results watching party? What kind of spread would you serve your guests? What would be the beverage of choice?
