The reality is the only real tossup state that was seriously hit by
Sandy is Virginia. People in New Hampshire are survivors, not whiners,
they will vote. Ohio has had a lot worse problems and they got to the
polls. I don't think the other 3 you mentioned are up for grabs.
The real problems are in solid blue states that would have never gone
to Romney in the first place.
Romney has a whole lot better chance of winning the popular vote but I
don't think it helps him in the electoral college at all.
OTOH if these states were as civilized as Florida the residents would
have until midnight Wednesday to get a vote by mail ballot on the way
to them. You can fax in the request.
Even if there were a clause in your constitution saying that elections
could be postponed in the event of a natural disaster, that's not going
to resolve the situation.
People would then be arguing over whether or not to invoke such a clause
to delay the election, and whether or not doing that would affect the
results of the election.
In my view, it's better to have the election on the scheduled day and
let the chips fall where they may.
Truth be known, BOTH of your candidates would make for a good president.
They have different slants on the Robin Hood politics of taking from
the rich and giving to the poor, but beyond that, they're both
experienced politicians, they're both intelligent and level headed
people, they both have good advisors to choose from, and they'd both
make good decisions.
NJ is looking to use military vehicles as temporary polling stations:
...and extending the deadline for mail-in ballots:
"We all should vote 'forward' - just don't vote Barack-ward..."
