How can the World Series affect the presidential election? That’s a question being debated in New England, where they worry about such things. The thinking is if the World Series goes seven games and ends Oct. 31, the victory parade in Boston would be scheduled on Election Day. That could affect the voters in New Hampshire, some of whom would have to make the choice of staying home and voting or driving to Boston and back to take part in the celebration for the Red Sox. New Hampshire is considered a swing state, and could be important if it’s a close electoral race.
