My Usual Election-Related Question

Why are the US elections held on a working day?  Why not have the polls open on Saturday and Sunday instead?  That would be much better for employed voters and for anyone who is minding small children or taking care of a sick or elderly person.  And having two days for voting would take care of the religious rest day objection and, probably, let even those who work one of the weekend days go out and vote.
