Trump supporters protest outside Fairfax early voting site
FAIRFAX, Va. - First it was mail-in voting.
Now some of President Trump's supporters are protesting in-person, early voting in Virginia.
Filmmaker Anthony Tilghman shared video of the protest Saturday in Fairfax with FOX 5:
Tilghman tells FOX 5 that the protesters first blocked the entrance to the polling site before officials forced them to move 40 feet away as required by law:
Tilghman reported that election officials eventually moved voters waiting in line inside because of the protests.
President Trump has repeatedly attacked mail-in voting on the campaign trail, saying without credible evidence the practice is ripe for fraud.
Officials in many states are boosting availability for early, dropoff and mail-in voting in light of the need for social distance during the coronavirus pandemic.
Early voting in Virginia began Friday and will last till Saturday, Oct. 31.
