Dallas Attorney David Coale Talks to KLIF 570 Morning News

Election Bumping

Published April 6, 2020

What will it take for the presidential election to move from the second Tuesday in November?

It really, it can’t. It’s set by a statute that Congress passed set many, many years ago,” said Mr. Coale. “If Congress could, in theory, get together, both houses of Congress pass a law, set a new date, the president signs it. But it would have to take place before January 3 because the Constitution requires the electoral votes to be counted in early January and the new president to take office by January 20th.”
