“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.”
When I read the first reports on Twitter about this, the pictures that accompanies it were those flat field-of-vision kind where it was hard to see how far away the Red Hats were. So they were within the law, but barely. I don’t think that there is any doubt that they intended to intimidate, but kept to the letter of the law.
Get ready, if you are planning in-person voting. This is going to happen again.
