Why do We Vote on Tuesday?

We vote on Tuesday because back in the days of horse and buggy if people left to go to the polls on Friday, they would not make it there until Tuesday. On a more serious note, they needed one full day to get to the polls, one full day to vote and one full day to get back to worship for three days. The only two days available were Tuesday and Wednesday. Wednesday was market day so Tuesday it was and it has been the set to vote every since then.
