Back to Survey

In the mid-nineteenth century, Tuesday was made to be the official election day. This was so people who had to travel to polls by horse & buggy didn't have to disrupt their Biblical Sabbath (Sunday) in order to make to their voting booths.

But, it should really be, " In the mid-nineteenth century, Tuesday was made to be the official election day in the United States."
