Call for Federal holiday – Vote Day
By John Hampton Jr.

To be delivered to: President Barack Obama

We need a national day set aside to assure every American can go vote on Election Day. This would be a mandatory paid day off. It should carry with it a human rights clause so that nobody can refuse it for another person. Vote Day needs to be a reality in the United States and its territories. This is a bi-partisan request and would serve to get the American people more involved in their government.

Let’s make Vote Day happen!

Every American has a vested interest in who leads our country forward. We need to make sure that every person who wants to vote is able to do so. Only then will we have a chance at a true democracy. Contact: @NativeSonKY on twitter.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
