Should national election day be moved to the weekend? Poll pending.... explain answer. MY response: YES. Tuesday as national voting day is way out dated. Sorry but how many of you live on farms? How many of you that do live on farms require more than a day to get to the nearest voting booth? Voting day should obviously be on a Saturday - or at least made a national holiday. EDIT: I should have added another option "leave it to the states to decide"
