      I’m calling my Gov office, as well. I tend to do that anyway, but we better fucking do this. I’m already demanding the USPS be supported, ffs…

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      What could he do to delay it?  What options do we have available to stop Trump from delaying the election or cancelling it?

      I remember having read that only Congress has the authority to delay a presidential election – no one else.  I could be wrong.

      none yet

      … not even during the civil war has an election been denied or “delayed”.

      If there are no elections and no elected leaders, then the prez will only be able to serve until January 20, 2021, two and a half months after the election date that denied the election. If so, the same end game goes for the VP. It actually will fall upon the ranking member of the Republican Senate to take that office. That’s 85 year old Chuck Grassley, who isn’t up for re-election.

      @thompaine  @cal22

      That’s all I know and since there never has been anything like that and everyone weighed in to Trump-a-dump with their feelings on that, it won’t happen.

      Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

      @cal22 It’s in the Constitution itself. Congress can change the date of an election; no one else.

      Trump can’t delay the election. Only Congress can do that. Surely Moore knows this.
