New York Magazine quotes Chris Rock, currently on tour, at his Wednesday night Madison Square Garden show:

"They don't want you to vote. If they did, we wouldn't vote on a Tuesday. In November. You ever throw a party on a Tuesday? No. Because nobody would come."

Amen. Why do we vote on Tuesday? Here's the answer.
