Make voting easy.

We have lots of federal holidays that honor our nation’s history and government. We celebrate America’s independence on July 4th and our leaders on President’s Day.  Each Memorial Day, America honors men and women who have died protecting democratic values and ideals, including the right to vote. So why not make Election Day a National Holiday as well? Sign The Petition Below.

Make Election Day a National Holiday

America has lower voter turnout in presidential elections than all but three developed countries. Nearly 60% of eligible voters skipped our last Federal election. And while making it to the polls on Election Day shouldn’t be difficult, it can be hard to take off time from work and early voting is not allowed in every state.

One change could fix that: Let’s make Election Day a federal holiday.

Doing so could have a big impact on voter turnout, help to increase participation among young people and low-income Americans, and highlight the importance of civic participation.

By signing this petition, I agree to make election day a federal holiday.

FirstLive is non-partisan. Our social mission is to ‘nudge' our culture to vote in local and national elections. Currently, there is proposed legislation to make voting a national holiday. We wholeheartedly support the initiative.
