2020 Election Day: 3 Key Questions Facing U.S. Voters

Person Holding Vote Pins | Veteran Car DonationsCan you believe that Election Day is just around the corner? Amid a pandemic, this year’s election could easily go down as one of the most unconventional U.S. presidential races in history.

Due to the risk of coronavirus transmission, election experts remain uncertain as to how the system will work. Analysts are saying that 40% of the ballots cast this November will be done by mail, with 76% of voters eligible to use mail-in ballots despite President Trump’s protests against the method, claiming that it could lead to a rigged election.

Since the majority of American voters are expected to vote before the 3rd of November through postal votes, it might take several days, or perhaps even weeks, for the official results to be announced.

Despite all the uncertainties surrounding the election process, however, certain aspects are enshrined in the U.S. Constitution.

Here are three key questions facing voters in the upcoming presidential election.

  1. Who are the candidates?

Voters will decide whether to re-elect President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence or let their Democratic rivals, Senators Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, to take the helm of our government.

  1. Can the election be postponed to a later date?

Many are wondering if it’s possible to move the election because of the pandemic. President Trump doesn’t have the power to change the date. However, delaying the election is technically possible if Congress intervenes, but that’s highly unlikely to happen because the House of Representatives is comprised mostly of Democrats who are against the idea.

The election date is not written in the U.S. Constitution, but the Charter does outline a date for the inauguration of the newly elected president in January.

  1. Can you vote by mail in your state?

According to a New York Times analysis, at least three-quarters of all American voters are eligible to receive a ballot in the mail. While most states have deadlines to request mail ballots less than two weeks before the election, the Postal Service strongly recommends voters to request them by October 19th. This is to ensure that all ballots are returned on time.

Although all states allow at least some mail voting, some will make it more accessible to voters than others. In 25 states, voters are required to procure an application for an absentee ballot themselves. In other states, voters have the option to cite the coronavirus as their reason to vote absentee, or they may not specify any reason at all.

Since rules differ in every state, it’s important to check with your country officials for more information about absentee voting.
