Kentucky has used Covid-19 as an excuse to slash polling places for Tuesday’s vital primary to defeat #MitchMcConnell. There were 3500+. Now, there are 200.— Ava DuVernay (@ava) June 20, 2020
Jefferson County, where half the Black voters are, will have 1 polling place for 610,000+ voters.https://t.co/mTJT1dSVP9
Kentucky, being the trash state it is, normally has 3700 polling places but today only 200 were open. In Jefferson County with 600,000 mostly Black registered voters, only 1 polling place was open. Not only did they have to stand in long lines, they had to wait just to park due to traffic.
Doors were closed but have been reopened.
(Charles Booker is running as a progressive Democrat in Kentucky)

Stay in line! You will be able to vote!
It sure looks like it from where I'm sitting. This is not just scandalous, it's un-American. https://t.co/d1QRUYDyc2— bettemidler (@BetteMidler) June 23, 2020

Since people are lining up to vote in Louisville, Kentucky today, seems like a good time to arrest Breonna Taylor’s murderers. #SayHerName— Ron Perlman (@perlmutations) June 23, 2020
