Why do we vote on TUESDAYS?!?

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

Ever wonder about voting on the “first Tuesday in November?” Works great for 18th century American male property owners: harvest’s in, etc. Elsewhere, most voting’s done on weekends — better if you work an hourly job, or need someone to watch the kids. Probably holds down turnout more than anything else. But incumbents like it – worked for them — so don’t expect to see it change. Honk if you see discrimination!
