I understand that it can be favorable to create a predictable timetable for elections, however, I don't understand why certain countries decide to time their elections in a certain month.
- In the United States, the federal election is specifically mandated to happen in November.
- In Estonia, the parliamentary election must happen in March.
- In Sweden, the parliamentary election must happen in September.
- In Lithuania, the parliamentary election must happen in October.
What are the considerations that go into these decisions? Is it arbitrary? Or are there reasons such as the climate or seasons (e.g. people might be more willing to vote in the pleasant autumn breeze rather than the scortching summer heat.)
