Arlington town elections are different from anywhere I've lived in recent memory. Everywhere else, federal, state and local elections were held on a Tuesday. Can anyone tell me why Arlington holds town elections on a Saturday? I can't imagine this does anything to improve turnout. Wouldn't it be more cost effective to hold town elections the same time as state and federal elections? The only advantage I can think of is this: Since most polling places in Arlington are in public schools, a Saturday election would not conflict with a regular school day.
