✓ In most places, elections are held on Sundays. Voters in the U.S. may head to the polls on Tuesdays, but the rest of the world prefers to save its votes for Sundays. Interestingly, countries in which English is the primary language tend to be the exception to this rule; in Canada, citizens vote on Mondays, while Brits vote on Thursdays, and Australians and New Zealanders on Saturdays.
✓ The millennial generation accounts for one-third of the electorate.
✓ In most communities, the turnout for voting is less than 50%.
✓ In most state and national elections, you need to be registered to vote anywhere from 10-27 days before the actual elections. That is why it’s important to regularly check if you are eligible to vote in your district.
