Politicians (the left) mulling moving the election
Because of the hurricane and how it ravaged the north east – politicians are discussing if they can move election day next Tuesday by a week. The president does not have the power to move the election – elections are left up to the states. Congress can have a say but they are not in session.
In 2004, Congress passed a resolution on changing presidential election dates stating:
“No single individual or agency should be given the authority to postpone the date of a Presidential election.”
