The 2020 Presidential Election

May 14th, 2020 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

There is a lot of chatter on social information sites about whether or not the Presidential Election will be held this fall (November 3, 2020). Some of the chatter has even made the main-line news. So let’s see if we can set this matter straight.

Federal law requires the election day for president is the Tuesday next after the first Monday in November. The Constitution Center says this about federal presidential elections: “In general, a combination of state or congressional actions (italics added) could delay elections but not postpone the selection of a president and vice president. The only hard deadline spelled out in the Constitution is the end of a president’s term and a vice president’s term on January 20 of the year following a general election.”
