Introduction:

Election Day in the United States is the day set by law for the election of public officials. For federal offices (United States Congress, President and Vice President), it occurs on the Tuesday after the first Monday of November in even-numbered years; the earliest possible date is November 2 and the latest November 8. Presidential elections are held every four years, while elections to the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate are held every two years. General elections in which presidential candidates are not on the ballot are referred to as midterm elections. … Many state and local government offices are also elected on Election Day as a matter of convenience and cost saving, although a handful of states hold elections for state offices (such as governor) during odd-numbered ‘off years.’ … Election Day is a civic holiday in some states, including Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, and West Virginia.Wikipedia
