November 8, Tuesday: Reason is here for the election date
America was a predominantly agrarian society, and the month November is for rural workers. It is traditional that the people living in rural areas time to travel to towns and cities to vote. The US election date removed that need to travel on Sunday. And, it is the first Tuesday in November after the first Monday of November 2016. This was to avoid clashing with All Saints Day. And the day when businessmen traditionally did their accounting from the previous month.
UPDATE: Donald Trump Wins the presidential elections with 5,82,12,712 votes.
