Election Day usually refers to the day when general elections are held in a country.

In many countries, general elections are always held on a Sunday, to enable as many voters as possible to participate, while in other countries elections are always held on a weekday, as many feel that Sundays are religious holidays that should be devoted to God. However, some countries, or regions within a country, always make a weekday election day a public holiday, thus satisfying both demands. By contrast, in Australia where voting is compulsory and New Zealandmarker, elections are traditionally held on a Saturday. In Canada, federal election day must be selected to be a Monday (unless a holiday, in which case the polling day will be the following Tuesday).
