Guys, did you know that there was a primary election yesterday in Wisconsin, allegedly? During a pandemic (WI has nearly 2,500 confirmed cases)? With a shelter-in-place order in existence since March?
Despite all of that, John Roberts’ joke of a Supreme Court decided that the fewer people who vote, the better. His hobby of destroying voting rights is taking new directions!
Anyway, voters were forced to stand (socially distant!) in (terrifying!) lines for up to 5 hours! To vote! Oh, and if that is not enough, the number of polling stations was radically reduced (who would want to volunteer?) and so the WI National Guard was called out. There were only five polling places open in Milwaukee, down from 180. Waukesha, with a population of over 70,000, had only one polling location.
So why didn’t they cast absentee ballots, you ask? They tried! Some Wisconsinites who requested absentee ballots never received them, and John Roberts’ U.S. Supreme Court reset the deadline for receipt of mail-in ballots to yesterday, shortening the time frame by six days.
There are no results, and there won’t be for a week, as Wisconsin has said they will not release any totals until April 13 (the deadline for receipt of mail-in ballots).
All of this voter suppression fuckery was brought to us by the Republican Party. Remember that the next time they blather on about the sanctity of the vote and how much they love the Constitution. And never forget that John Roberts was installed on the Supreme Court by Chimpy McStagger, who also was the beneficiary of a blatantly, stolen election decided by… The Republican Majority Supreme Court.
