Hurricane Sandy has impacted millions of people around the east coast, destroying houses, cars, neighborhoods, leaving many states incapacitated. The devastating storm has negatively impacted the election in many ways. Firstly, the 1845 law says the presidential election must be held the first Tuesday of November, postponing the election could interfere with the 14th amendment.
It has been clearly stated that the election will resume on Tuesday and each state must present polls functional by Election Day.
“• Sandy makes it difficult for both candidates to break back into the public consciousness with any new initiative or negative attack against their opponent because the focus is elsewhere.“
