Protesters March in Chicago Over Voter Suppression, While Trump Vote Challengers Attempt to Watch Vote-Counting Process in Detroit

Hundreds of protesters marched from Daley Plaza in downtown Chicago on Wednesday night, November 4, 2020 to demand every vote to be counted in the U.S. presidential election.

The march, organized by the Chicago Alliance Against Racist & Political Repression, was initially planned in support of a wide range of progressive issues, but the march’s messaged was adapted after President Trump filed lawsuits calling for vote counts to be halted in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia. The Democratic Socialists of America group joined the protest.

Demonstrators in Chicago were speaking out against voter suppression and declared they didn’t want President Donald J. Trump to claim victory as ballots were still arriving.

Protesters marched down Michigan Avenue Wednesday evening, stopping at Grant Park where they came together to declare their initial messages involving the New Green Deal and universal health care.

Trump’s campaign announced Wednesday, November 4, 2020 that the campaign will request a recount in Wisconsin.

Meanwhile, in Detroit on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, a crowd gathered outside the TCF Center in Detroit as election officials told a group of Republican vote challengers that they could not re-enter the vote-counting room because it was overcapacity.

The Republican vote challengers chanted “Let us in! Let us in!”

“Detroit election officials are currently refusing to let the public observe the counting process at the TCF center. They have padlocked the doors. This is a disgrace to the democratic process.”

— Michigan Trump Victory Deputy State Director Drew Thompson

Michigan Trump Victory Deputy State Director Drew Thompson shared images and video on Twitter showing chanting and the building’s locked doors, which were locked from inside by Detroit police. The doors were locked with cables and padlocks.
