was the 1864 election delayed?
- I heard someone claim today that the 1864 election was
delayed because of the Civil War. Do you know if
that's true? If so, what was the legal basis used for
the delay in 1864?
- The 1864 election was held on 11/8.
I don't think there was a delay. 11/8/1864 was a Tuesday right?
- No idea if it was a Tuesday or not. But if it was postponed in 1865
then it must have only been postponed a few days. And that doesn't
seem likely to me. I'd expect a postonement, in their time or ours, to
be at least a few weeks, because there'd need to be that much time to
get all the polling places reorganized. Or so I suspect.
