1/Trump Supporters continue to protest at the #EarlyVoteVA site in Fairfax VA. They have to move voters inside because they are blocking the site for voters

2/As you can see here they are blocking the entrance to the voting site. #EarlyVoting #VA #FairFax

3/Update: Most of the #MAGA Supporters cleared out when extra security came to monitor the voting site.




----

What a country we live in where some think they have the right to vote, but others don't.

7. This is all Trump's attack against mail in voting is about

The Trump campaign/RNC plan to suppress the vote in heavily Dem precincts through long lines and voter intimidation. THIS is why they keep arguing for in-person voting while sending mailings and text messages to Republicans, encouraging THEM to vote by mail.

14. I'm no lawyer, but I suspect there is all kinds of law breaking here

Just off the top of my head:
No campaigning or campaign materials within some distance of any polling place
No obstruction of voting
No intimidation of voters


The great thing about early voting is our side gets to see what they are up to early on and gear up the response in the courts and on the ground.

Trump terrorists truly do intend to block voting all across the country. He has told them to do that.

27. Yes, it's a federal felony

Physically blocking the entrance to a polling place comes under the Voter Intimidation Act 18 USC, Title 18-594.

Up to one year in a federal slam and up to $1,000 fine

34. Quick action/response needed.

We need to put a video of this into a Biden ad NOW. Undercut them and expose them so that when Trump and other R candidates go to court with challenges after they lose, they will have zero credibility.

We could also use some Woodward/Bernstein type investigative reporting to reveal who has something on several appointees and elected politicians, what it is, and how it is being used. Even just one such revelation would be a tremendous help in saving the republic by opening people's eyes to what is happening.

28. That's the case in California

When I lived there, I was a Poll Inspector for many years. Other states have different distance requirements. Some are 50 feet.

Now I'm in Oregon and the only electioneering we have to worry about is if I wear my "Nevertheless she Persisted" T-shirt while we sit at the kitchen table and fill out our ballots.

----------------

For Virginia.....

Virginia

During the times the polls are open and ballots are being counted, it shall be unlawful for any person (i) to loiter or congregate within 40 feet of any entrance of any polling place; (ii) within such distance to give, tender, or exhibit any ballot, ticket, or other campaign material to any person or to solicit or in any manner attempt to influence any person in casting his vote; or (iii) to hinder or delay a qualified voter in entering or leaving a polling place. (Va. Code Ann. § 24.2-604(A))


Our law in KY is 100-ft....

Kentucky

No person shall electioneer at the polling place on the day of any election…within a distance of one hundred (100) feet of any entrance to a building in which a voting machine is located if that entrance is unlocked and is used by voters on election day. Electioneering shall include the displaying of signs, the distribution of campaign literature, cards, or handbills, the soliciting of signatures to any petition, or the solicitation of votes for or against any bona fide candidate or ballot question in a manner which expressly advocates the election or defeat of the candidate or expressly advocates the passage or defeat of the ballot question, but shall not include exit polling, bumper stickers affixed to a person's vehicle while parked within or passing through a distance of one hundred (100) feet of any entrance to a building in which a voting machine is located, private property …, or other exceptions established by the State Board of Elections through the promulgation of administrative regulations. (Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 117.235(3))

33. Fairfax is true blue Virginia's 11th congressional district;

Represented by Democrat Gerry Connolly.

Democrat David Bulova is the Delegate for the 37th District

Hillary Clinton won Fairfax 61.3%

According to 538, Joe Biden is 96 in 100 to win Virginia.

Trump Supporters efforts are futile.

The sidewalk is wide open. Look at the end.

They're demonstrating. That's their right. This is especially true in Fairfax Country, home of the person who wrote the First Amendment, and location of the university named after him.

Go ahead and alert. It won't be the first time.

40. There should be no election materials close to the polling place.

How do they have a right to demonstrate in there? They were blocking the entrance and officials made them move.
"Tilghman tells FOX 5 that the protesters first blocked the entrance to the polling site before officials forced them to move 40 feet away as required by law:"

If they blocked the entrance to the building, then someone should come up with video of that. I haven't seen it yet.

It's a huge plaza. It would take more people than are in the video to fill it.

I still don't see the point. Don't Trump supporters vote early? Granted, there aren't too many Trump supporters in Fairfax County, but there must be some wanting to vote early.

I'm in Alexandria. I just handed my ballot application to the letter carrier an hour ago. I'll be turning in the actual ballot itself in person. I'll take a dim view of anyone who tries to keep me from doing that.
