Default sandy + the election = ???

what will happen if people impacted by sandy can't vote. will the elections be delayed? i heard someone say that ny doesn't have early voting. is that true? even if there is early voting people are trapped and worrying about survival NOT getting to the voting booth.

what will happen? will people be given the chance to vote or is it just whatever happens on nov 6th is it?

As much as I want the election to be over, they should push out election day so everyone has a chance to vote if they want to.

I'm guessing they'll be like,"well the show must go on"...but hoping they can vote early or something that gives them extra time.

Was hurricane Irene 4yrs ago too,I don't remember since I don't have family or live in the east coast.Just hope people are okay.

NY does not have early voting. I'm not sure about NJ. My concern is that NY is solidly Democratic because of downstate... where the storm damage has occurred. Upstate NY is much more conservative. There are a ton of Romney signs in my neck of the woods, and fewer Obama signs.

If they decide to postpone it, I wonder how they'd determine a date. Someone will cry "foul" no matter what they do.

I highly doubt anyone will make concessions on Tuesday for 30% of the country. Their thinking is that if your polling place is still flooded or has no power by then, well, too bad. And as someone else stated, NY does not offer early voting. Even if it did, I doubt people would be taking advantage of it during this situation as survival take precedence.

If they can move tax day out following a natural disaster, I'm not sure why they can't move voting day out. All the states affected by the hurricane are either blue or undecided--not a single red state in the bunch. That hardly seems fair to me.

^That's the thing. Republicans are doing everything remotely possible to block those from voting who they know will never vote for them. Hence why I'm not optimistic about them postponing election day.

I still don't think it's fair and I think it sucks that the fact that these states are blue states makes it less likely voting day will change. Hopefully these communities can dig out and will remember that it was the republican lawmakers that prevented them from having a say in who is their president.

Agreed.

Well if they have to verify ID it might be even more difficult hopefully there can be a compromise because its not really a fair vote.

I'm just now seeing some more of the damage from the storm. It's much worse than I thought. To all that survived safely I'm glad. I don't know what else to say.

It would definitely be fair for Election Day to be postponed but at the same time I'm sure politics is the last thing on people's minds right now. And for how long? While I think it's fair I just don't see it being feasible.

I'm scared.

I was forced to watch faux news earlier and it made me nervous.

The President wins on Electoral votes. Likely even with the impediments to voting in the Eastern coastal States that are predominantly Democrat, then those who actually can and do vote will still be predominantly Democrat.

What would change so that those States would swing Republican during this tragedy? Would more Republicans than Dems get out and vote during the tragedy? Why would that be?

see cosmicfly's post #5. What if the areas hardest hit are the more democratic areas while those not hit are more republican. It can change the state from blue to red
