Congressional mandate... other countries vote on weekends though. Congress would have to change the law.

Pity, it makes attending voting harder than need be.

Because in 1788 we were an agricultural society.  Voters were farmers.  November so it was after the harvest and wouldn't keep them from their crops.  Tuesday so they could drive into town on Monday after spending Sunday at church.

Where in the Hell are the courts on this? Why doesn't someone move to take away their tax-exempt status?

I know, I know...but this infuriates me! If I were in one of the churches and that was read to me I would be enraged and the whole congregation would know it on the spot!
