Flashback to April: Postponing the presidential election – could it happen?
For all the hype of the past few days, remember this:
There is no federal election for president.
All you do is vote for your state's electors to the electoral
college. The presidential election is purely a state matter and barring a constitutional amendment, bush cannot cancel or postpone elections, though he could, of course, ask each state individually to do so.
However, to get an idea what type of fear-mongering and possible contingency plans (including martial law, where all bets are off) the administration is geared towards, recall the past few months: Between the Lines with Tom Brown
