Learn more about Election Day and its history!
Have you ever wondered why Election Day always falls on a Tuesday? It is an antiquated tradition dating back to the 1800s. In those days, many people had to travel a great distance from their farms to the closest town in order to vote. Tuesday was the best day because people could begin their journey on Monday and avoid traveling on the Sunday sabbath. It also ensured they would be home in time for market day on Wednesday.
To celebrate Election Day, exercise your rights as a citizen of the United States of America and cast your vote! You can also volunteer to help drive people to the polls and invite a few friends over to watch the election night news coverage. Enjoy!
