I'm a poll worker in Milwaukee. I've been wrestling with what we're being asked to do tomorrow.

We're being asked to put our neighbors at risk.

We're being asked to be infrastructure for an illegitimate election.

I refuse to participate.
@govevers: shut this down.

We need to confront the crisis of constitutional democracy in Wisconsin. Some thoughts about this:

1) Tomorrow, major papers around the state should run A1 editorials calling the election illegitimate and a breakdown of the rule of law and democracy. @journalsentinel shd lead.

I should say thank you to @avierkant and @realLandsEnd — my @DeathPanel_Pod collaborators — who helped me think through these realities last night. I wanted to press on. But we have an obligation now to register just how dangerous and illegitimate this election is.

@co_pony @PhilipRocco @Falcaopods @GovEvers That's cool, but a lot of low income folks don't have cars. This is a pretty inequitable solution.

@hill_charlotte @GovEvers Any advice you, as an election professional, have for poll workers here tomorrow would be greatly appreciated. I think a lot of folks are wrestling w/ the ethical implications. I just think this is a spoiled election and we shouldn't lend it legitimacy or put others at risk.

@PhilipRocco @mattbc @GovEvers My mom is a poll worker. She won’t be tomorrow.

@PhilipRocco @shaunking @GovEvers Pass out the masks and wear gloves. Only to the Dems. The Repubs still have to come out and vote themselves.
