      I used to think a public holiday made sense. I no longer do and it's because even during a public holiday, there are plenty of retail workers, restaurants, etc that stay open. I want all of those people to be able to vote too.

      I like the idea of early voting over at least the 7 days of the week (Sunday - Saturday). Most people have at least one day off over the course of a week.
