Every four years we vote on a Tuesday in November. My question earlier today was do you know why?
Here's the answer:
Way back in colonial times, by November the harvest was usually over. So the people went to church on Sunday, took Monday to travel to the polls and voted on Tuesday, returning home on Wednesday. Just goes to show how much we still follow traditions of our forefathers.
Hope you all voted today! As Americans and citizens of a nation ruled by democracy, you can make a difference!
