The only way to do this would be to put back the vote so it starts earlier so we get the same time we do now for the initial vote. But then we'd need another few days for the second vote. So if we have six days for the initial vote and three days for the second vote, we'd have to push things back.
The top two books are typically clear within the first 3 days, so there's no need for the initial vote to take longer than that. Even if someone misses the initial vote, that person can still participate in the run-off and vice versa.
