  •  Democrats Should Make Voting A Holiday (2+ / 0-)

    I don't mean a real holiday, but a day that should be celebrated.  Parents have to instill in their children at a very young age that voting is not only a right, but is also a priority.  If democrats get the older generation voting than we should get that segment to show young people that if they don't vote they will lose that privilege.  It has to start at a very young age.  When voting day comes up older democrats should get out there and talk about that day as special and a day to celebrate.

      would be better - give people time to vote. Not all states understand that people can't get take an hour - or a day- without pay just to vote. Make it easy, make it not a chore, provide something to amuse the kids that are brought because no sitter or child-care is available.
