Trump against a simplified voting system.
The President of the United States Donald trump asked the question, not whether or not to postpone the presidential elections in the country. They are scheduled for November 2020.
Trump suggested that perhaps we should postpone the election of the President “as long as people will not be able by all the rules and it is safe to vote”. He used the words “securely” and “safely,” which means security from the point of view of health, and from the point of view of the rule of law and security of personal data.
The first is connected with coronavirus pandemic, which continues in the United States: at the moment in this country, it was revealed most of the patients COVID-19 in the world. The second is connected with the peculiarities of voting in the United States: several States were allowed to replace voting in person at the precincts voting by mail. Trump and many members of the Republican party are opposed to such a change and I think that with postal voting can be thrown tens of thousands of ballots from non-existent voters, or Vice versa “lost” their voice.
“Given the universal vote by mail, the election 2020 will be the most INACCURATE AND FRAUDULENT in history. It would be a huge shame for the United States,” — said the President of the United States in his tweet.
Even if trump offered to postpone the election due to the coronavirus, it can be difficult to make this decision legally. According to the U.S. Constitution, to postpone the date of voting on elections of the President only the Congress. Accurate and unchangeable date of the vote spelled out in three Federal laws of the United States and sounds like the “Tuesday next after the first Monday in November.” This rule has not changed since 1845. To change it, you need to change three Federal laws, and the decision should be taken by both houses of Congress. In one, the lower, the House of representatives, trump and the Republicans have no majority.
Analysts expect that the upcoming November presidential election will be highly competitive: Trump, the nominee of the Republican party, will, in all probability, to confront the nominee of the Democratic party Joe Biden.
