WoodmenLife Tower is Lighting Red, White and Blue for Election Day
Omaha, Nebr. – Tonight the WoodmenLife Tower will be red, white and blue to mark Election Day.
Let’s review a few quick facts about this extremely patriotic holiday, brought to us by ConstitutionCenter.org:
- Election Day wasn’t a fixed day until 1845, when Congress stepped in to say it should be the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November.
- Weather and farming helped dictate when elections were held.
- The first lever election voting machine was patented in 1889 but took decades to be widely used. It was phased out by 2010 in the U.S.
