"That is a very good question, and as you know Louisiana, and Georgia, and Puerto Rico have delayed their elections. Postponed them, they've got dates in the future. Look, election dates are very very important we don't want to be getting into the habit of messing around with them. But you remember, and I just researched this, 9/11, you know there was a primary in New York City? Do you remember that?.... "....There was a primary. And it was canceled for obvious reasons in New York City and it was rescheduled two weeks later.
I would hope that governors listen to the public health experts, and what they are saying as you just indicated, we don't want gatherings of more than 50 people. I'm thinking about some of the elderly people sitting behind the desks, registering people, doing all that stuff. Does that make a lot of sense? I'm not sure that it does."
Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana and Ohio have postponed their presidential primary elections. In Ohio, officials declared a public health emergency just hours before polls were set to open on Tuesday.

The plot thickens in that many are confident that the polls are closed tomorrow....but may in fact either be open or will not have a postponed primary election outside of early absentee ballots already cast.

Wow great information there thank you!
So the Ohio primary is officially delayed?
Do you happen to know if Ohio is under a
shelter in place order? Can people still
go to work and to the grocery store?
