    capitalizing rules: Election Day

    I have seen the expression "Election Day" (US) capitalized.
    Which capitalizing rule is playing a role here?

    P.S.: Feel free to correct any mistakes in this post.

    It's an important day. It's one of a kind. We could also view it as a kind of title. Many people usually get to the polls early in the morning, but I think, though I'm not sure, that employers could be obliged to accommodate employees who need time away from work in order to vote. There are long lines in the morning in some places.

    I don't know what the specific capitalization rule is here, however. I think the reasons I gave justify it just the same.

    The same could be true for Inauguration Day. I'd have to consult our friend Mr. Ggle.
