I am waiting for Obama to suggest the election be postponed

Interesting you mention that... NYC is dark, and ConEd estimates 7-10 days to make the fixes.

This election is wayyyy too important to postpone.

It`s also interesting the different opinions here, not sure which one is right?

Some think that this is exactly what Obama wanted/needed, and I am wondering if he might suggest that the election be postponed...

Off top of my head not sure if it`s ever been done.

You can’t postpone it.

Impacted states could find ways to accommodate voters...printed ballots or something....but you have to have the election.

That’s why they are going to be having poll sites as top-priority power restoration locations.

I would be fine with opening up absentee balloting a bit in the impacted states as well, even if that hurts us a little.

But, I do not believe you can legally postpone the election. It’s in the U.S. Code as that day and that’s it.

It’s not hard to fix. As long as county governments have more available generators than there are polling places, no one will have any cause for complaint when the election takes place as planned Nov. 6. It’s a week from now.
