2012 Current News: It occurs on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. Do you know what it is? Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, 2012. A uniform date for choosing presidential electors was instituted by the Congress in 1845. Why such a roundabout way to say "Vote on Tuesday." The bill initially set the national day for choosing presidential electors on "the first Tuesday in November," in years divisible by four (1848, 1852, etc.). But it was pointed out that in some years the period between the first Tuesday in November and the first Wednesday in December (when the electors met in their state capitals to vote) would be more than 34 days, in violation of the existing Electoral College law. So, the bill was amended to move the national date for choosing presidential electors forward to the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, a date scheme already used in the state of New York.

Why on Tuesday? In 1845 farmers often needed a full day to travel by horse and buggy to the county seat to vote. Tuesday was established as election day because it did not interfere with the Sabbath or with market day, which was on Wednesday in many towns.

Why Vote? It is your Democracy and your vote is your voice – and the only person who can silence your voice is you.
