Stepdaughter in El Cajon, CA is telling us the Patriot Patties are harassing voters

Apparently going up to cars near polling places and telling people that they've taken a picture of their licence plates so the folks in the car had better vote for Trump.

Probably the same East County Snowflake He-men who blocked a major downtown offramp yesterday.

We told her to tell folks to take down their licence plates and call the police.

Stupid cowbois.

1. Use cell phones to take THEIR pictures and capture video of their threats.

That is the best response.

call the Federal Election hotline and report them for voter intimidation.

9. Sure, and post the video or pictures on Facebook and Twitter.

Help everyone know who those creatures are. They're doing this in a public place and have no protection from the right of privacy.

12. This is Duncan (felon) Hunter, Jr.'s old seat. It was a toss-up according to 538, but then Issa

started pulling ahead a bit. Just the fact that this is a close race says a lot.

13. Don't know. East County is like Alabama or Idaho.

Lots of Cafeteria KKKhristians, retired cops, and conservative wanna be Frontiersmen who don't like hedonistic city folks telling them what to do. Remember, they have been voting for Duncan Hunter pere and fils for decades.
The large Chaldean refugee community there is also very conservative, and may not support him simply because he would betray his conservative compatriots by working to drag East County into the 21st Century.

18. I'm in blue Boise

Sounds as if the rest of my state resembles certain parts of California, although the Mormons around these parts are for the most part decent in the sense that their conservatism is far removed from the KKK variety.

26. Don't you just love it when folks here fantasize that a CA breakup would result in 6 Dem Senators?

You barely have to drive an hour inland from the Coast, and California becomes more conservative by the mile.

5. How do they imagine that they could convice people that they'd know how they voted?

Voter intimidation. Should be video recorded and reported.

19. They're going for shock and intimidation value

In the event that an occasional voter will not be able to put 2 + 2 together. If you "Google" someone's license plate number, you will not bring up their voting record.

6. How would they even know who you voted for?

Obviously voter intimidation is horribly wrong and infuriating, but this is just dumb too. How would they even know who the person voted for?

16. Many don't know such facts about voting, and many others assume that even if their vote is

supposed to be secret, the bad guys have ways to circumvent the law.

7. Any news reports of this? How many people are affected? At just one polling place?

If the answers to these are mostly "I don't know" or "1" or "a couple", this would seem to be an insignificant report.

14. Don't know, we live in San Diego now.

It may be a small isolated situation the sheriff already took care of, or targeted harassment between groups of people who knew each other. But it is out there, just heard from a friend living in east La Mesa that they're having problems with Trumpsters acting out like bullies there also. Her elderly mom is now terrified to go out and vote today, so we will head out at lunch with a bunch of Lysol wipes and masks to take her to her poll location. Laz is 6'2", 280, and looks like he belongs on the Alabama defensive line. (Roll Tide), so if theres any harassment near the polls still going on, we will get the feds as well as cops involved.
She lives near the Shadow Mountain mega-church, if anyone can confirm.

They apparently imagine other people are as stupid as they are.

Which I suppose makes total sense.

20. Apparently around 94/Avocado/Jamacha area and/or Lakeside near Santee.

We don't do Facebook which apparently is where these stories are coming from, but between our La Mesa friend's report and the Stepdaughters friend who reported the original issue, that is where they would be heading out to the polls.
If false alarm or isolated incidents between opposing people who know how each might vote, it has gotten around to enough people to affect some voters - which is a concern. I've texted Stepdaughter to clarify if this actually happened to her friend, or if this was Facebook. But in an hour and a half, Laz and I are going to head out to help our friend's mother go vote, so we can see if there's still a problem.

25. Off to deliver "mom" to the polls.

Stepdaughter texted back, no other voting harassment talked about since 9:30 this morning. Hopefully you won't see anything and that was it for the day.
I'll update when we get back.

27. All's quiet on the Eastern Front, as far as I could tell, I drove down Jamacha into Rancho San Diego

drove Chase, Washington, Mollison in El Cajon, Woodside through Lakeside, Mission Gorge through Santee. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary, no Maga Drags, everything looked pretty quiet, actually. Took my mind off the anxiety of the day, getting out for a drive.

28. "Mom" got to the ballot drop-off fine.

She kept trying to ask us who we voted for, after she complained about how all these crazy people on both sides were making it not safe for people trying to just do their normal business. Facebook was where she got her news, and when she heard about all the problems going on around voting she was hearing about, she was afraid to be out there on her own or with her daughter, who is quite small.
No issues except for a line due to social distancing, of course. She could have easily gotten there on her own.
She didn't notice our Biden-Harris bumper sticker until we got ready to leave, and suddenly looked rather upset. I suspect we inadvertently helped out an elderly GOP mark.

Facebook is one heck of a trip.
