Why Tuesday?

A co-worker here in Canadia (Canadians are from Canadia, right?) asked today, “Why do you vote on Tuesday”? I had to be honest. “I dunno. ‘Cause Congress said so”.

Not good enough, eh?

Well, here’s more.

  • interesting article…i’d like to comment on the article where it says:
    “Polling in other countries often takes place on a weekend, presumably so that more voters can participate”
    in Canada, we vote during the week also. I don’t know if there is a specific date like “first Tuesday in November.” in Canada, the vote occurs from early a.m. to early evening but we are legally entitled to have time away from our work day to vote because it is so important.

    Thank you, Amanada for all your comments. Being an American and you being Canadian, I decided to censor some of your comments.

    J/K! Slow down on the submit button there, girl!
