Will a day off bring more to the polls in November?

...John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, and other Dems seem to think so.
Clinton, Kerry, Other Democrats Seek Election Day Holiday.
The AP (2/18, Barrett) reports Sens. Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and other Democrats Thursday urged “that Election Day be made a federal holiday to encourage voting.” The Los Angeles Times (2/18, Curtius, Simon) adds, “Kerry insisted Thursday that the bill he and his fellow Democrats were pushing was not sparked by his narrow loss in November. ‘This has nothing to do with the question of outcome of 2004. This has everything to do with full civil rights for Americans, period,’ Kerry said.”
