are you kidding?
There is no need for a delay of any sort. Any attack on the US will only affect a small percent of the population directly. There is no reason for elections not to go on as scheduled where there is no disruption of basic movement. The only way that basic movement can be disrupted throughout the nation is for the federal government to impose military law. And, I would like to point out, to do that they need to have the National Guard at their disposal. And just where is the Guard lately?

The one thing that could mess up the election is an inability to count ballots recorded electronically. What is absolutely necessary is that all elections have a paper vote back-up to be used in case of emergency. Even with electricity out, there is no reason elections can't be conducted if provision is made for voting the old fashioned way if need be. This is what Fatherland, er, Homeland, Security should be insisting on, not talking about cancelling or delaying elections.
