Weekend voting badly needed

Voter turnout will never meet expectations until weekend voting is implemented.

Weekend voting should solve the problem of low voter turnout, providing a convenient day and time to vote. Politicians complain of low voter turnout but they do nothing to improve the process. Honestly, politicians do not want to increase voter turnout because they know the smaller the number of voters the greater chance of victory for the incumbent.
I call on our local authority, Gary Smith and our Secretary of State, Karen Handel, to implement a weekend voting schedule for local and state elections. A Fri -Sun schedule gives concerned citizen’s ample opportunity to exercise their voting privilege.
