Best Answer

The first US Presidential election that required US Supreme Court intervention was in 2000, when the Court was called upon to render a decision about Florida election procedure in the case Bush v. Gore, (2000).

As a result of the Supreme Court's decision, Florida was forced to stop recounting ballots, resulting in George W. Bush winning the popular vote and all of Florida's electoral votes, awarding Bush the presidency.

How does the outcome of the off-year election affect the Presidential election?

Off-year elections occur in the middle of presidential terms. They usually reflect the current opinion of the President and his party.

However, much can change in two years and the candidates two years later may be very different from the present leadership.
