1. I'm wondering why Governors can't call out the National Guard to protect voters?

Is there a law against that? Maybe just in the swing states or states where known militias are out?

5. it's tricky. cops cant come into a polling place w/o a judge's permission.

 

i live in chitown, and this is an ollllddd trick. and so many judges are either ninnies or tools.
it's mostly on pollwatchers. but the cops are the proper authority.

6. This is incredible, also incredible that the laws against militias are being ignored

Let's hope they pull out all the stops at the polls. So stupid we even need to talk about it.

I live near one of the areas where Proud Boys are so proudly prancing around and there's not really that many of them. My thinking is, sure a few will get all riled up and run around ready to shoot at a squirrel but most are smart enough to realize it'd be illegal and don't really want to end up in jail or worse prison.

After their 10,000 expected rally at Delta Park resulted in maybe 500 (looked like even less to me), and they had put out the word, country-wide to come to Portland! So, apparently the vast majority are not in the mood to bother.

7. Get videos of them if you see this happening.

Contact your local election board. Also contact your local Dem committee office. The videos might be needed and useful in court cases. At the very least, they will alert people to what is happening, especially if any peculiar vote counts show up in places where the militias have been. Or, if there are any post election threats to people who voted in those precincts. Or to counteract claims from the orange fascist about voter fraud that the militia supposedly witnessed.

8. Oh, I remembered when Fox 'news' tried to make a fake controversy,

back when Obama was president, about two black guys at a poling placethey labeled as "Black Panther". Now you have a nincompoop at the White House actively calling his minions to go on and intimidate voters.

9. Armed intimidation at voting places?

Police protection needed to prevent interference with voters' right?

Yeah, ok. For a third world country, it's normal. It happens all the time. USA on the other hand . . . .
