Honest question:

What good would making election day a national holiday actually do?

There are a lot of national holidays where most people work - MLK’s Birthday, Washington’s Birthday (aka Presidents’ Day), Columbus Day, Veterans’ Day. I doubt most businesses are going to close for election day the way that they do for the “major” holidays (and hell, there are plenty of business that don’t even close for all of those).

That depends on how you write the bill.

Many businesses do close for other holidays, excepting certain businesses required for urgent things. For holidays such as Presidents Day, nearly everything here is closed.

Most things besides garden shops are closed for our one state holiday, Arbor Day.
