Next Tuesday is election day. If you've asked yourself, Why on a Tuesday?, then you're not alone. NPR had a segment that addressed this question, "Why Are Elections On Tuesdays?". Read or listen to find out why, back in 1845, Tuesday was the perfect choice.
If you'd like to learn more about the way elections are run, then look for The United States Election System [324 UNI]. This title in "The Reference Shelf" series explores elections and election history by compiling articles by writers from newspapers and magazines such as The American Prospect, Atlantic Monthly, The Washington Post, etc.
