Trump floats delaying the election, but he can't do that

Kathy Michael speaks

Voters who want to cast their absentee ballots by mail must complete and return an application to the registrar's office, but those who want to vote in person are not required to apply, Coakley said. Five states already conduct their elections entirely through the mail: Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington and Utah. Trump does not have the power to unilaterally change the date of the election, and there is no evidence that mail-in voting leads to widespread voter fraud, or that it benefits one political party over the other.

Early voting ballot applications for the 2020 General Election were sent to voters in Douglas and Sarpy counties today. Those same polls also show Trump trailing in key swing states. "The truth is that mail-in absentee voting is safe, simple, and patriotic - so much so that the president and more than a dozen of his closest advisors have done it".

Voters and public health officials have expressed concerns about the potential dangers for spreading the virus during in-person voting, and states have reported difficulty filling poll worker positions given the pandemic.

Visit Arizona.Vote for more information about statewide elections and Maricopa.Vote for Phoenix-area information. And while Trump draws a distinction between mail-in and absentee voting, there is essentially no difference.

There appears to be next-to-no appetite in the Capitol for a change to the November 3 election. "I never even thought of changing the date of the election", he said. November 3rd. It's a good number.

After Rafales Land In Ambala, Rahul Gandhi's 3 Questions For Government
The first Rafale jet was handed over to the IAF in October past year during a visit to France by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh . The jets were also refulled mid-air from a French tanker at a height of 30,000 feet, according to the Indian Embassy in France.

In late April, Biden told donors in a fundraiser: "Mark my words, I think [Trump] is going to try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can't be held".

"I'm not thinking about it at all", he added.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., a frequent critic of the president, sought to reinforce that Trump does not have the ability to act on his own. Barr responded: "Actually, I haven't looked into that question under the Constitution". In June, the president said that the "biggest risk" to his re-election prospects is increased mail-in voting and whether he can win lawsuits to stop its expansion.
