Trump Supporters Disrupt Early Voting in Virginia

A group of Trump supporters waving campaign flags disrupted the second day of early voting in Fairfax, Va., on Saturday, chanting "four more years" as voters entered a polling location and, at one point, forming a line that voters had to walk around outside the site.

County election officials eventually were forced to open up a larger portion of the Fairfax County Government Center to allow voters to wait inside away from the Trump enthusiasts.

Election officials said that the group stayed about 100 feet from the entrance to the building and, contrary to posts on social media, were not directly blocking access to the building. But they acknowledged that some voters and polling staff members felt intimidated by what some saw as protesters.

"Citizens coming into and leaving the building did have to go by them," Gary Scott, the general registrar of Fairfax County, said in a statement. "Those voters who were in line outside of the building were moved inside and we continued operations. Some voters, and elections staff, did feel intimidated by the crowd and we did provide escorts past the group. One of the escorts was the county executive."

In an unnerved electorate, where concerns about voting rights and safely voting amid the coronavirus pandemic are at a fever pitch, the demonstration outside of a polling place served as preview of a likely contentious election season, and how groups may be utilizing tactics that rattle or even deter voters over the next six weeks.

The disruption came as President Trump has repeatedly sought to undermine confidence in the upcoming election, spreading falsehoods about voting by mail and declaring the election "rigged" before any votes have even been cast.

The demonstration originated from a "Trump Train" parade that began in nearby Prince William County and featured Tommy Hicks Jr., the current Republican National Committee co-chairman. The event was set to end in the parking lot of the government center, which was also serving as the polling location on Saturday. Some of the people who attended the parade walked over to vote. Others gathered outside and began chanting, "four more years, four more years!"

Sean Rastatter, a vice chair at the Fairfax County Republican Committee who was at the polling location, said that he did not think any actions came close to voter intimidation, and that many of the discussions from members of the group were with journalists.

"I don't think there was any way to need or feel intimidated in any form," Mr. Rastatter said. He added that county officials asked the group on several instances to back away from the curb, and that the group complied.

Bryan Graham, the chairman of the Fairfax County Democrats who was also at the polling center, saw it differently, writing on Twitter that "the Republicans are straight-up attempting to intimidate voters at the government center."

In an interview, Mr. Graham said he'd "never seen or heard of anything like this happening before."

"I was there when the county executive was there and I saw him walk multiple people through the crowd because they didn't feel safe," Mr. Graham said. "I don't think it's appropriate. We shouldn't be doing things to make people feel unsafe."

Steve Descano, the county attorney, did not directly address the demonstration in a statement posted to Facebook on Saturday, but said that he was "instructing my office to pursue cases of voter intimidation that may occur."

Virginia election law states that it is illegal to "hinder or delay a qualified voter in entering or leaving a polling place," and that it is also prohibited to perform any kind of political advocacy within 40 feet of any entrance to a polling place.

Videos of the demonstrators quickly went viral on social media, and show them gathering outside the entrance, holding up Trump campaign signs and chanting as voters walked past them.

Some election rights groups said that the Trump group might have still crossed a legal line.

"In Virginia, the safe zone around the polling location is only 40 feet, but that safe zone is for campaigning and trying to change a person's vote," said Sylvia Albert, director of voting and elections at Common Cause, a voting rights group. "Outside of that, in general, there are laws against intimidation. So I would say that even if they have a right to campaign, which they absolutely do, they do not have a right to interfere with someone's right to vote or to intimidate them."

"To me, this went beyond campaigning and they should have been removed."

The first two days of early voting in Virginia were marked by high turnout and long lines, with voters beginning to line up early in the morning, hours before polls opened. The state offered expanded early voting in an attempt to alleviate crowding at polling centers during the pandemic.

Ms. Albert added that the demonstration underscored the need for counties and municipalities to develop contingency voting plans for all situations.

"Contingency plans aren't only if there is a hurricane or a pandemic," she said. "It's also if something is making my polling location inaccessible to voters. That could be power going down, that could be people protesting and blocking the door."

Can you show that these intimidation techniques did not succeed even once?

How do you feel about Trump supporters being so terrified of the election that they are actively trying to dissuade people from voting?  They don't seem very confidant in their candidate's ability to win.

What do you mean by intimidating? Do you think people were afraid to vote? Afraid to approach the building. 

How are they intimidating? Do they seem violent? Were they chanting threats? Shaking their fists? Pointing weapons? Throwing things? Maybe hiding their faces in case they decided get rough with people or vandalize something?

Oh wait. I just looked at the picture again. A bunch of those people are African Americans. Are they intimidating because they're black?

Right, those precincts in cities that vote 99% for Democrats are conclaves of Rhodes scholars. 

Hate to burst your bubble, but the last time exit polls measured voters without a high school degree, 2012, it was the group Obama ran up his largest margins. 

And I’ll bet if you looked at those precincts with the highest percentage of voters who lacked high school degrees, Clinton cleaned up there too.

If people are intimidated by a Trump sign, they have FAR bigger problems to deal with mentally and I suggest they seek counselling.

The Trump people had signs, and chanted. Oh, NO!!! The sheer HORROR of it all!

Even your OWN article says they did NOT BLOCK entrances, were well away from the entrances (as required by Virginia law) and stopped NO ONE from voting.

You don't strike me as someone who puts a lot of effort into philanthropic concerns.  However, if you are serious, you might consider volunteering at your nearest polling venue.  Many senior citizens prefer early voting, and an escort through the process is usually appreciated.

I don't see any voting booths in the pictures associated with the seeded article, and nothing in it suggests or even hints that there were voting booths close to the peacefully assembled people holding signs for a candidate and chanting 4 more years.

I doubt that such demonstrating will change a single vote, and if any were changed it would be away from Trump and toward Biden. The election officials there must make sure though that no voters are actually impeded or blocked or threatened and if necessary arrests should be made.

Why would you assume they come from Maryland, or that Maryland has been destroyed?  Why would you think Virginia is "going into the toilet"?  Our economy took a hit from the virus, but so did the economy worldwide, and we seem to be recovering pretty well.  Virginia ranks high in the US in the percentage of our population with a college education, and our high school graduation rate is above average.  Our rates of poverty and violent crime are lower than the national average.  What's in "the toilet"?

BTW, Maryland doesn't look all that bad, either.

Perhaps you'll recognize this source.  It's a newspaper from your neck of the woods, which, according to MBFC, is right-center:

https://www.dailypress.com/government/virginia/dp-nw-virginia-bond-rating-20200408-suhvhf5fdbc7pklyfcme6phypq-story.html

Analysts really like it when a government socks away money when times are good -- which was a big talking point when Secretary of Finance Aubrey Layne talked recently to bond rating agencies about the new coronavirus.

And a first formal reaction is in: Fitch Ratings says Virginia will keep its AAA grade -- the top of its chart -- and that the state’s outlook is stable.

Layne said his conversation with Fitch and the other big two rating agencies focused on the state’s effort to beef up its financial reserves over the past two years.

Those reserves are up from a 20-year low of $235 million in fiscal year 2016 to $791 million last year and were on track to hit $1.5 billion by June 30.

“When times are good, they want to see you put money into reserves and not spend it all,” Layne said. “They understand with things like coronavirus that you’ll need to go into reserves.”

Building up Virginia’s reserves was the top priority for both Layne and the General Assembly’s money committees over the past couple of years, as the state’s relatively strong economy saw multi-million-dollar increases in tax collections.

...

Fitch said its decision to confirm Virginia’s top rate reflects the state’s "solid fiscal resources, conservative approach to financial operations and exceptional financial flexibility."

The agency also said Virginia’s relatively strong economic base and low debt burden. adding that it expects the state to “absorb negative effects of any federal contraction and maintain economic growth.”

Seems like we were in pretty good shape heading into the pandemic.

Virginia law enforcement officers still have qualified immunity.

E. It shall be permissible to distribute campaign materials on the election day on the property on which a polling place is located and outside of the building containing the room where the election is conducted except as specifically prohibited by law including, without limitation, the prohibitions of § 24.2-604 and the establishment of the "Prohibited Area" within 40 feet of any entrance to the polling place. However, and notwithstanding the provisions of clause (i) of subsection A of § 24.2-604 , and upon the approval of the local electoral board, campaign materials may be distributed outside the polling place and inside the structure where the election is conducted, provided that the "Prohibited Area" (i) includes the area within the structure that is beyond 40 feet of any entrance to the polling place and the area within the structure that is within 40 feet of any entrance to the room where the election is conducted and (ii) is maintained and enforced as provided in § 24.2-604 . The local electoral board may approve campaigning activities inside the building where the election is conducted when an entrance to the building is from an adjoining building, or if establishing the 40-foot prohibited area outside the polling place would hinder or delay a qualified voter from entering or leaving the building.

No way even CLOSE to 500 feet.

A relevant comparison would be more beneficial to your argument.

A New Hampshire woman voting in the state’s Tuesday primary election voted topless after she was told that she couldn’t wear a shirt criticizing President Trump to cast her ballot.

Now this is the kind of activism I think most of us can get behind, or in front of...

This reminded me that I need a new avatar.  I couldn't find a pic of her, though.  Dammit.

You mean I can't wear my "Fuck Trump" t-shirt into the polling place???

People are just killjoys

Illegal, so much for "law and order", if any Biden supporters had tried this you can bet they would have been arrested.

Not one thing illegal about this.

Please provide any link proving your theory that Biden supporters would have been jailed for doing the same.

Right, like all the leftist Brown Shirts that have been arrested for rioting; and then cut loose in such lovely places as Seattle, Portland, Chicago, NY, Detroit, etc. 

If only the left could protest as peacefully as these people were supporting Trump. They broke no laws; but should have been arrested for what again?

Only in leftist land is theirs the only free speech that is protected. Of course their free speech includes rioting, assault, murder, arson, and looting as we.

Detroit

Careful now... there's been very few issues here recently. I suppose considering a large amount of the buildings already being burnt down would prevent such things again, but still. jrSmiley_86_smiley_image.gif
