    it really doesn't matter how long you keep the polls open, provided you can afford it.  And we live in a day and age where the cost of affording everyone the right to vote any day in the cycle is downright negligible.  As for hanky panky, again there's not much exploit to gain from a year round opportunity than there is from say a day everyone knows is coming.

    While I'm glad you have fun with your vote, not everyone is interested or even able to make a holiday or ritual out of voting.  A good number of us see it as yet one more decision we frequently have to make in our lives, and we are deliberating hamstringing ourselves by insisting that said decision be made once in a cycle without much chance of reconsideration.
