US NEWS: Concerned Americans vote on Election Day with faces covered, shops rising

ATLANTA – Americans began voting on Tuesday on election day unlike any other, intensifying the threat of COVID-19 and the potential for violence and intimidation behind one of the most divisive presidential races in U.S. history.

At polling stations near the country, commemorations of the 2020 election year, which was plagued by epidemics, civil unrest and political turmoil, greeted voters, despite the fact that more than 90 million votes had been cast in an unprecedented vote.

Many will wear masks at polling stations – either voluntarily or by official authority – for an outbreak of coronavirus in many parts of the country.

Some voters in major U.S. cities They see businesses riding as a protection against politically motivated coups, a rare sight on Election Day in the United States, where voting is peaceful in modern times.

In Atlanta, Georgia, about a dozen voters lined up before sunrise at Piedmont Park Conservancy. First in line was Ginnie House, shivering in the cold, waiting to vote for Democratic Alliance candidate Joe Biden, a former Republican vice president who wanted to replace President Donald Trump, a Republican, at the White House.

“I have lost my vote of absence and I will not miss this vote,” said House, a 22-year-old actor who has studied art in New York and returned for this purpose alone. About Trump, he said: “You divide our country.”

In Hialeah, the most populous Cuban city in Miami, Marcos Antonio Valero, 62, was voting for Trump, as he did in 2016, and said he had taken a day off from his job as a construction worker to vote in person because he did not trust voting by post.

He did not specify which Florida, the country closest to the battlefield, would comment.

“It’s a secret, a mystery,” he said. “No one knows how it will end until we all know.”

The American Civil Liberties Union and other human rights organizations say they are paying close attention to signs of voter intimidation.

Georgia’s ACLU ambassador has placed about 300 attorneys nationwide in about 50 areas that could be “hot spots” for Tuesday’s voting crisis, including 15 polling stations in Atlanta.

The U.S. Department of Justice The Civil Rights Division is sending workers to 18 provinces to monitor voter intimidation and oppression, including some of the battlefields and cities affected by this year’s civil unrest.

Police and business owners have said they are taking steps to protect property, and there are still memories of sometimes violent protests over racial injustice in many summer cities.

In New York City, the Empire State Building, Macy’s shop, and the skyscraper that housed the popular Trump News channel Fox were among the buildings that were leased.

On Rodeo Drive, one of California’s most expensive shopping streets in Beverley Hills, workers stripped windows displaying Tiffany & Co and Van Cleef & Arpels treasures.

“I hope all this is in vain,” said Kathy Gohari, vice-president of the Rodeo Drive Committee, a retailers’ association, on Monday as she watched workers beat wooden planks at luxury stores.

However, fists, eggs and insults have already flown in Times Square in New York City in recent days among Trump’s zealous supporters, Democrats and supporters of the anti-fascist anti-fascism movement.

A plot by the anti-government militia to kidnap the Democratic Democratic Republic of Michigan, unveiled last month, has highlighted possible political violence on Election Day. Police in Graham, North Carolina, detonated a group of anti-apartheid activists with a pepper spray while marching to the polling station on Saturday.

On a Texas highway on Friday, in a show reminiscent of the movie “Mad Max,” a series of Trump-carrying trucks surrounded a Biden bus loaded with campaign workers in what appeared to be an attempt to force the bus off the road.

Trump praised bakkie drivers as “patriots,” and expressed impatience with the Federal Bureau of Investigation when the agency said it was looking into the matter.

In New York City and elsewhere, trucks with Trump’s flags lined the highways and bridges, according to local media outlets, provoking traffic at a disgraceful show of support for the president.

Even after the vote, Americans have expressed concern over what could be a long-term count.

As the United States suffers from the world’s deadliest coronavirus infection, many countries have increased early voting to reduce the number of infections that spread to polling stations.

The initial 97.7 million record entries have been filed in person or by post since Monday afternoon, which represents about 40% of all Americans eligible for official voting.
