State to Consider Making Election Day a State Holiday

Lawmakers are considering a bill that would designate Election Day a state holiday and there is a public hearing on it today. 

The Government Administration and Elections Committee will hold a public hearing today on several bills, including the one that would make the Tuesday after the first Monday in November a holiday to remove barriers to voting.  

Lawmakers are also considering extending same-day registration to 8 p.m. 

The hearing begins at 11 a.m. in Room 2A of the Legislative Office Building.
