Dear Ms. Hoepfner,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
There is no provision in the Constitution of the United States providing for the possibility that elections do not occur. As you may know, the President of the United States is elected by the Electoral College. Article II, Section 1 grants to state legislatures to power to determine the manner in which electors for their state are appointed. It also empowers Congress to determine the time in which electors are chosen, and the date on which they shall give their votes. Therefore, you may wish to contact your representatives in Congress and in your state legislature, as well as your state or local election board if you have any questions about upcoming elections. You also may be interested in the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s web pages on Contingency Planning and Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources.
We hope this information is helpful.
