FACT CHECK: No President, including President Trump, has the authority to delay or change the date of the election. Our elections are enshrined in the Constitution and can only be changed by an act of Congress.
The focus should be on holding safe, secure elections on November 3rd, not delaying them.

Families in Michigan are desperate for help. Calling for a delay in our election, which he has no power to do, is the latest attempt to distract us from his failure to lead during this crisis.
Only Congress has the authority to change the date of the election, and we will not be changing or delaying the #2020Election.

President Trump today again attacked the integrity of our election system, this time even suggesting the election should be delayed. Mail-in voting is safe and secure. California and others have long histories of mail-in voting, and widespread fraud has never been a problem.
There is no reason to delay our election, end of story. The process is secure, and I encourage all Ohioans to make their plan to vote by November 3rd, either by mail, or in person in a safe, socially distanced manner.

The Presidents reckless tweet seeks to undermine the legitimacy of our elections & our democracy. There is no reason to delay the election & only Congress has the authority to change the date of an election.
I believe the election will proceed as planned with measures ensuring that Americans can vote safely and securely as we do in Utah. If circumstances arise, then Congress will be the one to determine a delay, as is our Constitutional duty.
