"Yes" is the correct answer
Most importantly everybody that wants to vote should be able to get to the polls to do so.

I wouldn't want to have all of Los Angeles County not able to make it to the polls and loose California.

important election, doesn't that mean the terra'ists win?

5. Talk about "un-AMERICAN"
I can't remember ever making that accusation, preferring to argue positions as "un-Constitutional" or the ever applicable "just plain wrong" but where the hell are they finding 2 out of 10 AMERICANS agreeing to delay elections?

11. There is no reason to postpone them.
Edited on Mon Jul-12-04 12:01 PM by higher class
Where is there a large gathering of people other than at the homes or hotels where the candidates are staying? There are probably more people gathered in the propaganda offices of the Corporate Propaganda Networks than anywhere.

The gatherings at the candidates hotel rooms can be protected.

We can all vote by absentee ballot.

We can take time to count the ballots.

We can make sure we get the military ballots all counted before we make announcements.

AND CONSIDER THIS -

WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE CORPORATE PROPAGANDA NETWORKS PRETENDING TO BE COMPETING TO BE THE FIRST TO ANNOUNCE A WINNER - WE CAN HAVE A PLAN FOR AN HONEST, LESS SHOWTIME, LESS HOOPLA EVENT - WE CAN BE ADULTS AND MATURE AND SERIOUS ABOUT OUR RIGHT TO VOTE.

THERE IS NO REASON UNDER OUR SUN TO POSTPONE THE VOTE.

There would have to be thousands and thousands of terrorists to disrupt the voters.

SO ASK EVERYONE OF THOSE PLOTTERS WHO THE TARGET IS. PIN THEM DOWN. HOLD THEM RESPONSIBLE FOR TELLING US WHO THEIR THINK TANK ANALYSTS BELIEVE THE TERRORIST WOULD ATTACK.

I am going to repeat these words on threads unless someone here points out the flaws in my thoughts.

Also, remember, they - the right wing propaganda networks disbanded their jointly supported polling service in 2000 - we have no neutrality from corporate propaganda networks. In addition to trying to expose the black boxes, we should also try to organize our own polling services.

14. I voted NO. Also heard on CNN they couldn't delay vote!
In order to delay the vote, they would actually have to change the constitution which is a virtual impossibility.

17. Even if there's an attack on the day of the election, local authority
decides:

TITLE 3 THE PRESIDENT

Chapter 1. Presidential Elections and Vacancies

1. The electors of President and Vice President shall be appointed, in each State, on the Tuesday next after the first Monday in November, in every fourth year succeeding every election of a President and Vice President.

Failure to make choice on prescribed day

2. Whenever any State has held an election for the purpose of choosing electors, and has failed to make a choice on the day prescribed by law, the electors may be appointed on a subsequent day in such a manner as the legislature of such State may direct.
