    October 30, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- As millions remain without power and transportation, the presidential may be the last thing on their minds. But what would happen if large sections of the East Coast can't vote next week? Could the election be rescheduled?

    Could the election be postponed? Yes.

    Members of the forum have been saying for some time Obama may try to pull something like this. :eek:

    Really? There is a large section of our military that is not going to be able to vote, and the liberals don't seem to be worried about that. It is still a week until the election. Not being able to get to the polls is not a very good excuse.

    If they had to go to the polls to get their welfare checks or food stamps, they would be standing line.

    This is all about the liberal vote, they aren't concerned about anyone else.

    Getting to the polls is one thing. Having them open with electricity is something else.

    Only Congress can change the date and they aren't in session.

    The election is actually 51 separate elections. Each state has 34 days from the date of the election set by Congress to turn in the results and cast the ballots for the electors of the Electoral College. Now, a state 'could' conceivably postpone or extend voting for some reason, but they still would have to have their electoral college votes in on time. New York and New Jersey could perhaps postpone elections for a few days if they needed to. For New York though they could only do so for areas of New York City - not for the whole state because there would be no just cause to do so for the rest of the state. No other states have any reason to postpone any elections or any plans to do so. Reality - it isn't going to happen. Neither New York or New Jersey will vote Republican anyway. So, as long as they get a reasonable turnout they will call their states for the Dems.

    You know, I used to believe this until the illegal commie took over and started doing whatever he wanted whenever he wanted. I want to believe it would take congress to change this, I really do.

    Maybe they will just try and skip it all together...

    Something I've wondered that may sound far out to some of you, is if the powers behind the scenes that control everything, including HAARP, could have created Sandy to disrupt the election(s). Maybe I'm a little paranoid, but the things I've been learning lately about the world and our government are astounding.
