If you read my post closely I basically agree with you. I said, if your boss won't let you have the time off vote absentee. I don't think we need a new holiday. Especially when we have several elections during the year. It is nice if companies do give their employees the time off but it is up to the individual to vote so get out and do it whatever it takes!
Of course these will never be closed on any holiday but that doesn't mean the employers couldn't make sure everyone had an hour off so everyone could vote. But it does beg the question if you know you have to work and can't get the time off why don't you absentee vote?! In Columbia County Washington we all have to vote by mail so its easy but there is no reason if you want to vote and it is important you can find a way so get out and VOTE!
