Election Day is here! Below are some highlights from the day before the polls closed.
Current former and RNLA leadership have been featured over the past few days in the media:
“[T]he focus of the GOP has been to ensure the integrity of the election process so that all Americans can have confidence that the election results reflect the will of the people." ~ RNLA Executive Director Michael Thielen #ElectionDay #Elections2020 https://t.co/i7j7tS7ZiM— RNLA ⚖️ (@TheRepLawyer) November 3, 2020
RNLA GA Chair Jake Evans on @SkyNews: "In the United States, there are rules, and there are laws on how elections have to go forward. . . Election laws have to be made by legislators. They can't be created through the courts." #ElectionDay #Elections2020— RNLA ⚖️ (@TheRepLawyer) November 3, 2020
Thread: I joined @EveningEdit tonight to discuss @FLOTUS take on the media. @realDonaldTrump used to be very popular with the media until he took on the establishment. Over the past four years the #MainstreamMedia has been 100% against him. Please watch and SHARE! pic.twitter.com/WBNfnDs2Dp— Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) November 3, 2020
Early in the day, one of the big stories was of a robocall that voters across the country received on and before Election Day. Over the past few weeks, people have been reporting the robocall telling them to "stay home and stay safe." Calls like this are especially concerning on Election Day:
These calls are more likely to suppress GOP votes than Democrat votes, as GOP voters are more likely to vote on Election Day. The left is always quick to label calls that might impact Dem voters as #VoterSuppression - why not this? https://t.co/xgZxIUU1Q5— RNLA ⚖️ (@TheRepLawyer) November 3, 2020
While all eyes are usually on Florida, the day went relatively well in the swing state.
People always crack jokes about Florida. Yes, the elections there are close. But after 2000, the state really buttoned up how it handles elections, counting votes, etc. and it’s one of the best in the country.— Jay Caruso (@JayCaruso) November 4, 2020
Unsurprisingly, the usual shenanigans were going on in Pennsylvania:
ILLEGAL campaigning INSIDE of a polling location in Philly. Man in blue is handing out DEM literature to voters IN LINE TO VOTE. This is why DEMS are keeping TRUMP WATCHERS OUT. They are STEALING it! This needs to STOP! pic.twitter.com/qnJ3D8o2ie— Mike Roman (@mikeroman) November 3, 2020
Getting texts from multiple PA folks I trust about shenanigans there. Poll watchers excluded from polling places, closed polls in specifically GOP-heavy areas, etc. Silence from the folks screaming that requiring ID or not allowing 10-day-late ballots are voter suppression.— Inez Stepman ⚪️🔴⚪️ (@InezFeltscher) November 3, 2020
Rick, don’t you know ballot harvesting is illegal in PA? I guess we should just ignore these things out of risk of “undermining” the election? https://t.co/6XMnNezkiy— Justin Riemer (@Justin_Riemer) November 3, 2020
Others states also reported issues throughout the day:
Technical difficulties in Nevada https://t.co/wWluwAtCA4— RNLA ⚖️ (@TheRepLawyer) November 3, 2020
Reports of voting machine issues in Washington, Michigan https://t.co/n1a47I9T1x— RNLA ⚖️ (@TheRepLawyer) November 3, 2020
We've been told the machines are back up and running. ePollbooks still down but they have paper back ups. https://t.co/mnvKVVt1Dk— Justin Riemer (@Justin_Riemer) November 3, 2020
Thank you to all of the lawyers already on the ground working to ensure the integrity of our elections!
Grateful for my partner @RonColeman, counsel @MarkMeuser, and literally hundreds of lawyer friends working overtime to witness the election, step in to protect civil rights, and document, research, and draft in case litigation is necessary. God bless them! https://t.co/AVs7DCrM5b— Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) November 3, 2020
