Maskless Voters Turned Away in VA, Despite Lack of Mask Mandate

Linkedin Share

The Virginia Governor’s race is a dead heat, but some of those who tried to vote on Tuesday are now getting heated.

That’s because of concerns over potential voter suppression at the polls, particularly in cases where unmasked voters are being turned away  despite the lack of a mask mandate that would make such a thing possible.

Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union, tweeted he was rejected from voting because he was maskless. “I was told at my polling station I couldn’t vote without a mask,” he said.

“Knowing what the GOP thinks about masks, isn’t this just an illegal barrier to voting?” continued Schlapp. “But I can count on one thing our judges will do nothing.”

Other conservatives were quickly chiming in.

Founder and President of Turning Point USA Charlie Kirk also tweeted reports of precincts blocking maskless voters.

“Hearing that voters in Virginia are being turned away from polls for not wearing a mask,” Charlie tweeted. “If this is true it’s unacceptable.”

“Voters CANNOT be denied their constitutional right based on an unconstitutional mandate Virginia Voters: hold the line—don’t let them block your vote,” Kirk said.

Knowing that more of the unmasked are conservatives voters than not, this sort of electoral discrimination will almost certainly have an effect that behooves the Democrats.
