Sorry, I should have taken a leave of abscense but stuff is okay now. I think this bill could and should help a lot. If Election Day was a federal holiday, imagine the good it could do for turnout and for our nation. Regional laws would also be good for this, but I think this is a good policy.

On the wiki in the statute page, listed under the 5th Congress there is F.L. 5-9 Federal Electoral Holiday Act.
https://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Federal_Electoral_Holiday_Act

Part of this act does this:
Quote
All dates where Federal Elections are held are hereby established as Federal Holidays. Citizens are hereby granted the right to miss up to 4 (four) hours of a work day in order to vote. Employers shall not infringe upon this right by punishment of legal action taken by individual states or regions.

There is no link on the wiki page to the legislative debate or presidential signature to verify if it was truly passed but I gather if it's on that page it is. 

Thatís rather interesting, I may present a new amendment then.
