Potential for the virus to impact election schedules
South Carolina is one of many states going ahead with political qualifying in advance of both the primaries in June and the general election in November. But some states have stopped. What if the pandemic is still spreading by election time? How might that change the course of elective politics as we know them? A close follower of the country’s political scene is Oconee County resident Jim Bohannon. And he says while it is possible that elections can be called off, one thing is certain. And, that is, by the next presidential inauguration day (in January 2021,) someone must be sworn in as president. Bohannon explains during an interview that can be heard today on 101.7/WGOG NEWS.
