Will Superstorm Sandy impact Election Day?

NEED TO KNOW
  • Could vote be delayed?
  • EAC.gov has resources you can use to check on polling places in your state

We still don't know how Election Day is supposed to work now for all the people affected by Superstorm Sandy.  Power outages and transportation issues could be a huge problem, come Tuesday Nov. 6.

Many East Coast polling places were heavily damaged and power problems could affect electronic voting machines.

Only Congress can change Election Day, and every state (even those not affected by Sandy) would have to be included.  That's never happened.

As we get closer to Election Day, here’s a site you can check for each state's voting information: U.S. Election Assistance Commission
