At least one environmental organization is trying to make sure Sandy has an effect on the race – here is the new ad that ClimateSilence.org is running in Ohio and Virginia:

Ari Berman reports on another way Sandy could affect people's votes :

[While the states hit by Sandy should have their power mostly restored by Tuesday, many] will still experience the potential for serious problems, either on Election Day or the days proceeding (early voting has already begun in a number of states affected by the storm). Problems could include: electronic voting machines without power and a shortage of backup paper ballots; polling places without power, damaged or moved; voters unable to reach their polling place or unable to mail in an absentee ballot by the deadline; election administration unprepared to deal with a multitude of new, unforeseen complications.
