WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the storm taking aim at the East Coast is "serious and big" and will be "slow moving."
As for the potential impact on voting, Obama says that "we don't anticipate that at this point but we're obviously going to have a look."
Some states have begun early voting ahead of the Nov. 6 election.
The president made the comments during a visit Sunday to the headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to get an update on plans for responding to Hurricane Sandy.
The National Response Coordination Center in Washington is where FEMA is managing the deployment of federal resources and teams to states along the East Coast ahead of the storm.
Later Sunday the president will head to Florida where he's campaigning on Monday.
