Presidential Election

The U.S. Presidential Election occurs on November 3, 2020.

Due to the Pandemic, it is quite likely that there will be a huge number of postal votes. These votes must bear the signature of the person voting otherwise the ballot could be discounted.

This election could create huge problems with lawyers challenging votes and people taking to the streets to support their candidate.

Trump has already said if he trails in the vote he will say it is a fix and will challenge. In other words unless Biden wins by a large amount of votes and gets enough Electoral College votes, Trump will not accept the results. The Electoral College has the votes by States equal to that States’ number of Congressmen plus its two Senators. Thus California has 55 votes whereas Montana has just three votes.

If neither candidate gets enough Electoral College votes to win (270 needed), the Constitution requires the House of Representatives to select the President and the Senate the Vice President.

Under the Constitution, each STATE delegation in the House gets 1 vote. If States with an equal distribution of Democrats and Republicans, Biden and Trump may not succeed in getting the 26 votes required. The House becomes deadlocked.

The Senate can choose the Vice President by simple majority vote which has a Republican majority.

If the House is deadlocked when Trump’s term expires on January 20, the line of succession kicks in and either Pence or Harris become President. With this Senate that would be Pence.

THIS IS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT THAT EVERYONE VOTES EARLY AND REMEMBERS TO SIGN THEIR POSTAL VOTES SO THEY ARE NOT CHALLENGED.

We know already that Putin wants his puppet Trump re-elected and the Russians will do what they can to mess things up.
