Most elections are held on a Tuesday. That may be so in the US. In the UK elections are held on Thursdays. In Australia elections are held on Saturday and the public schools are used as polling places.
By law, Election Day in the US is the Tuesday following the first Monday in November. The earliest the first Monday in Novemeber can fall is on 1 November, so the earliest the following Tuesday can be is 2 November. As a result, Election Day in the US can never fallon 1 November.
Super Tuesday Correction: It's simply called Election Day. Super Tuesday refers to the day in February or March when the largest group of states hold their primary elections. The general election doesn't have a nickname.
