The buildup to Tuesday’s election has been intense, but it’s finally here. And there are several reasons to expect that Tuesday won’t be a quiet evening in quarantine.
Voter turnout in 2020 could set a record in Washington state. And, depending on how events unfold on Tuesday, many observers predict people could take to the streets to express their feelings.
Particularly if Trump declares victory on election night, and then encourages states to not count additional votes, “I think you will see Democrats and people on the left in the streets,” said Cornell Clayton, the director of the Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service at Washington State University.
At the same time, it appears supporters of Trump will be out in full force on Election Day showing their support for the president, which could lead to other confrontations.
