Election Day in the United States has been the first Tuesday of November for almost 300 years now. Tuesday was chosen as not to interfere with religious ceremonies of many faiths that usually occur on Sundays. Even though you can be elected at the age of 35, John F Kennedy was the youngest to ever be elected at the age of 43. Interesting fact, the State of Ohio has recorded the vote of every President since 1944. Until 1856 you needed to be a property owner in order to run for the office of the President of the United States. George Washington was the only President to ever win 100% of the vote. I guess it helped that he ran unopposed.
