Tuesday has been a long time coming, hasn’t it?
We are a nation who has been preparing for the absolute worst on election day. Our President has warned us of violence in the streets, widespread voter fraud, and more. There’s simply no way in which this election could be undertaken without some sort of controversy, right?
For many, the first signs of trouble came from The Keystone State.
Election Day kicked off with a bout of chaos in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, with poll watchers reportedly denied access and witnesses alleging “illegal campaigning” at various polling locations.
According to Trump 2020 EDO director Mike Roman, Democrat election officials are banning Trump poll watchers all across the city, as one video shows. Another photo on social media shows a physical barrier, which Roman says Democrat officials are using to keep poll watchers far from the counting tables[…]
It is unclear at this time which precinct in Pennsylvania this poll watcher attempted to watch, and local officials have stated that the man was not registered to observe their ward.
Others complained of campaigning material being posted at voting sites.
