AGENCIES, Washington: Former Vice President Joe Biden said on Thursday at a virtual fundraiser that he believes President Donald Trump will try to delay November’s presidential election. “Mark my words: I think he is gonna try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can’t be held,” Biden said.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, a number of Democrats have been pushing for funding for an all-mail election for the forthcoming presidential election. While fears over the coronavirus and its spread have increased concerns over how the election will be held safely, there have been suggestions to expand voters’ access and allow voting by mail. Voting by mail would alleviate concerns over social distancing in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Biden said Congress needs to ensure that states have sufficient funding for to ensure such voting options were available during the pandemic.
