People have died and may die from Hurricane Matthew. They’ve been injured and there will certainly be more injures. People will be without power, their homes and property will be damaged. But, know what is the most important part?

Hurricane Matthew Could Have Devastating Consequences for the Election

If Hurricane Matthew is as devastating to Florida as forecasters have predicted, it could be a human tragedy costing people their lives, health, homes, and personal property. Beyond that initial tragedy, though, the storm also may have dire electoral implications, potentially affecting the outcome of the 2016 presidential election and landing emergency election litigation from Florida once again before the (now-deadlocked) United States Supreme Court.
