Voting Official Seeks Terrorism Guidelines

The government needs to establish guidelines for canceling or
rescheduling elections if terrorists strike the United States
again, says the chairman of a new federal voting commission.

Such guidelines do not currently exist, said DeForest B. Soaries,
head of the voting panel.

Conspiracies, anyone?

There is a real question here. In particular, 9/11 was a local
election day, and there was no law about rescheduling the
election. However, De Soaries has the common Washington
foot-in-mouth disease and tin ear for political nuance. How did
cancellation get in here?
