Both tickets could be dead by Nov 3rd

What happens if one or more parties to the presidential ticket passes away before Election Day?
A number of people are voting early for tickets that may not be viable.
Itís an unprecedented situation. Does any part of the law or constitution foresee it?

Enough is enough. Why can't we just do what we need to do, GOTV, and hold on to hope right now?

Everybody stop with the 'what if' posts.

30. I understand now. So, based on the OP,

If all tickets are dead, prez and veep, by Nov 3,

Dark chocolate.

But, if all are alive, and Biden is prez-elect, as I hope and expect, then

Dark chocolate.

Got it.

25. Stop trashing this thread, folks. This is supposed to be a DISCUSSION board

and I'd been wondering about that issue myself in the past couple weeks, since drumpf's taking ill. I did a Web search to see what could be found, and came upon this interesting article that looks at a number of possible scenarios.

I realize I didn;t put the real meat of my question in

If I were in-person at the polling place and I make a mistake I can ask for another ballot.
If I mail it in, in advance, I can do no such thing.
I genuinely wanted to know if there was a remedy, or if there even needed to be.

Thank you, again, for not being a bully.

but wins the election the vice-president elect would be the president elect.
