A Plan to Make November Polling Locations Safer
Sunday at 3:29 pm
It’s hardly a secret that Mad King Trump and his cabal of devious dirty tricksters, demonic foul players and devisers of dirty pools are busy concocting schemes to choke off the collective will of Black and Hispanic voters.
Their chief strategy: The antisocial distancing of polling locations calculated to stifle this cohort of voters from braving the long trek there in the first place; then to force long lines (which tend to compress) that they hope will stoke the existential menace Covid 19 poses.
The way to thwart their pernicious intent and stir up a headwind that sweeps voters to the polls? I propose we borrow a common tack of the supermarket deli counter by structuring a take-a-number system. With this tactic, voters won’t be forced to slot themselves into life-threatening lines and be free spread out of harm’s way as they wait for their number to be announced via loudspeaker, while it’s simultaneously beamed from a comfortably visible screen.
The deli-counter strategy: destined to counter a voter-suppression strategy of the Trump team of dirt-dealing despots.
