At a recent Boston City Council meeting, the council discussed the possibility of making Election Day a holiday, so more people are able to participate in voting.
Councilor O’Malley suggested the City create a paid holiday for its workers to increase voter turnout. While some NorthEndWaterfront.com readers commented in support of this idea, others expressed concerns that this holiday would not be observed by private companies. Some people feel early voting and absentee ballots are already enough for those who cannot get to the polls on Election Day to have their votes included.
