Donald Trump floats election delay

|

Washington, July 31: President Donald Trump is for the first time floating a delay to November's presidential election, as he makes unsubstantiated allegations that increased mail-in voting will result in fraud.

The dates of federal elections the Tuesday after the first Monday in November are enshrined in federal law and would require an act of Congress to change. The Constitution makes no provisions for a delay to the Jan 20, 2021, presidential inauguration.

    Five states already rely exclusively on mail-in ballots, and they say they have necessary safeguards in place to ensure that a hostile foreign actor doesn't disrupt the vote. Election security experts say that all forms of voter fraud are rare, including absentee balloting.

    Trump has increasingly sought to cast doubt on November's election and the expected surge in mail-in and absentee voting as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

    And Trump has called remote voting options the biggest risk to his reelection. His campaign and the Republican Party have sued to combat the practice, which was once a significant advantage for the GOP.

    Last month, Trump told supporters in Arizona that This will be, in my opinion, the most corrupt election in the history of our country.
