The authority to postpone elections, while not specifically addressed by the United States Constitution, is thought by constitutional experts to
derive from Section 4 of Article I and Section 1 of Article II of the Constitution. These sections read, respectively: "The Times, Places and Manner
of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time
by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Place of Chusing Senators" and "The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors,
and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States." These two sections, according to most
constitutional experts, imply that the power to postpone elections rests entirely with Congress.
