You could schedule the election day on 365 days, and there’s bound to be a snowstorm, a storm front, or a blizzard in one of fifty states. We can’t beat nature. Course, if you allow early voting, then the odds are in everyone’s favor that they got time to vote on nice sunny day.
Vote-rich Democrats, Obamatrons, women and minorities hardest hit.

I thought coastal areas were the ones most likely to vote for Obama http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/politicselections/vote2004/countymap.htm
Both GFS and the Euro models say it will hit Wed AM. If it changes it will probably be to slow it even more (stronger = slower). The only impact I can see might be NC late on Tuesday.
Never quite understood what the weather has to do with elections. I go to work each day whether it rains or not. Why would one not vote because it is raining?
While Sandy was bad, I really hate this north east media bias. New York can get 6 inches of snow and it is national news, while here in Wisconsin we can get 2 feet and maybe a paragraph in the NY Times on page 6 section E.
Here we go again . . .
Mrs. Hugin talked to family in upstate NY yesterday. They said there is about a foot of snow, but that’s no big deal for them. Power’s on. It got me thinking the people in the big eastern cities (Obama voters) with no power and water will be much more disinclined to go out and vote than people upstate. It could shift PA, NJ and even NY to Romney.
Forecast for sunny and 46 degrees here in CT for election day
Who knew Mother Nature was a Republican...
It’s harder to make the voting machines default to Obama when there’e moisture in the air.
Rain on election day helps Republicans, who tend to be more motivated. This election will be all about turn out and Obama supporters are much, much less motivated than four years ago and Romney voters much, much more motivated than four years ago.
In part, because Obama was much, much worse than even I feared he would be.
Democrats Melt in Rain
Also, there is always this talk of "staying home" on election day. Staying home? Unless you are a housewife (nothing wrong with that), what do you mean by "staying home". I have always voted on the way to work or on the way home from work.
