Yes. I would also make it a two-day event with no polling results released until all polls are closed across the whole nation. I would encourage early voting. Same day registration with ID.

Yes, but why not just change it to a weekend? Friday night at 6 till Sunday night 8 pm. Even us procrastinators should be able to handle that.

So banks are closed and federal employees and schools are off and poor people still can't vote but they get holiday pay.

Opening day should be a national holiday.

Why? So they can use it as an excuse to close the polls for the "holiday", or so poll workers can get holiday pay for one of the few days a year they're working? Makes no sense to me at all. The polls are open early, late, and at lunchtime, and the very few who work more than a twelve hour day shift on certain Tuesdays can vote by mail. Assuming they don't live in one of the enlightened states where everyone votes by mail already. Which is the better solution to the non-problem.

What about people that are almost always away from their precinct for the first three days of the week

They do the same thing everyone else who will be absent on voting day does, whether they'll be out of town on Election Day, across town and can't possibly vote before or after work, or are in one of the rare professions that works through the entire period the polling place is open - they vote absentee.
