Polling places in Iowa are closing due to
COVID-19, which could affect close races

Original Article

Voters in Iowa are facing shuttered polling locations less than a week away from Election Day, largely due to the various outbreaks of COVID-19 that have gripped the state.(Snip) Reporting by NPR, the Iowa Public Radio News and the Center for Public Integrity finds that hundreds of polling centers have closed due to COVID-19, leaving voters with fewer local options.(Snip) These closures also come during a contentious presidential election and many local elections, leading officials to fear that a lack of polling centers may skew the election outcome.

Comments:

Is closure of polling places a COVID-19 “coincidental” hardship on voters, or a politically “convenient” hardship on voters? Perhaps a “mixed bag?”

I predicted this over a week ago, but I expected it in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. I still expect more than one Democrat governor to shut down his/her state by trying to require residents to remain in their homes on the week of election day under the threat of thousands of dollars in fines in addition to shuttering polling places "to save lives".

Bring in the National Guard to run these Polling places. Not fair to close them! Put your foot down Mr. President. Call the Governor! Get things sorted out. Do not allow them to shut down these Polling Places! I'm betting this is not a Democrat area or they wouldn't shut down!!

Sure looks sketchy, but I read that Iowans have been voting in person since October 20th. I'd like to think that Iowans dumb enough not to figure this out until next Tuesday are most likely Biden supporters.

I intend to vote in person on Election Day. Governor Tony Evers is a hardline Leftist who will stop at nothing to deny PDJT a second term. In Wisconsin, the media and Leftist politicians are braying non-stop about the China Virus. I see now why they have pushed so hard to get their voters to vote by mail: they intend to close the polling places on Election Day "for public safety" and deny Conservatives a chance to support President Trump.

If you are unsure where to go to vote, and can't get a phone call through to your local election commissioner -- PLEASE -- CALL YOUR PUBLIC LIBRARY!! The librarians will be able to look up the site of your local election commissioner and find out where you need to go to vote. We get calls for this before every single election and we are prepared for it. PLEASE. If you just need to know where to go instead of your usual voting place, a librarian will be able to find out for you. We are here to help you!

During the March, i think it was, the polls in Wisconsin were open for primary voting. I think the State legislature ruled for the polls to be open. And so people lined up, wore protective gear, and voted. Never heard about any "surges". The people need to demand that the polls open: maybe over the weekend into Tuesday. I can't believe that the citizens of Iowa are not furious. If allowed to stand, these voters will have been disenfranchised. We need Joni Ernst. We need every Republican Senator re-elected, or new

Chances are most of the polling places that would close are in the cities where most of the potential voters would be Biden-Harris voters. That’s not good for Biden-Harris, but they have been poking the COVID bear all along that could flip and easily bite them.

As the Trump campaign expands its lawsuits--including new filings Wednesday in Georgia and Pennsylvania--legal scholars say they are likely rooted in the Constitution's voting law authority, which limits the power of non-legislative actors trying to assert their power over balloting.(Snip)The Elections Clause of the Constitution (Article I, Section 4) gives state legislatures the authority to set the time, place and manner of federal elections, i.e., the rules governing the election process, including absentee ballots. Republicans say this legislative power has been eroded by both executive and judicial mission creep.

Masks have become a political tool and a talisman. When COVID-19 hit, governments panicked and created enormous fear. The Centers for Disease Control currently estimates a COVID-19 survival rate of 99.99 percent for people younger than 50, but the damage created by the panic was too great to undo. It is likely that some politicians eventually realized their mistake and needed a way to back-pedal without admitting their lockdowns were a policy disaster. Their solution was for people to put any old piece of cloth across their face and magically believe that it’s okay to go out shopping again.

Top Republicans in Washington are reluctant to call Joe Biden the president-elect publicly, fearing a rebellion by grassroots conservatives loyal to President Trump that would sink the party’s Senate majority. Republican insiders privately concede Biden ousted Trump and dismiss suggestions voter fraud, ballot errors, or other issues would be uncovered sufficient to alter the election. But with the president claiming otherwise and two Georgia runoff elections set for January that will decide the Senate majority, plus midterm elections in 2022, most congressional Republicans are backing Trump. The move is purely transactional.
