Here are a few fascinating facts about the history of Election Day in the U.S.:
* While the United States allowed women to stand for election in 1788, it wasn't until 132 years later, that women were finally allowed to vote in those elections.
*Tuesday was chosen as Election Day because Sunday was the Sabbath. If it were on a Monday, people might have to travel to their polling place on a Sunday.
*There are a couple of theories as to why November is the month in which we vote. One is that America used to primarily be an agricultural society; coming after harvest time, November was the most convenient month. Another explanation is tied into British history: it was in November, 1605 that Guy Fawkes and his band tried unsuccessfully to blow up Parliament. So by voting in November, we symbolically mark the survival of democracy.
