Did the March to Vote in NC vote?

Or, did the police not allow them to vote? Anyone from NC? Man, this is like a Voter Rights era battle!

So, no.

Voters marching to the polls in Alamance County today were turned back after sheriff's deputies pepper-sprayed them

Alamance is one of the key counties that will likely decide which party controls the state legislature next year #ncpol #ncga https://newsobserver.com/news/local/article246861942.html

3. Actual voting was not interupted


While called MTV it actually was a BLM rally/MTV.

On the way to the polls they stopped for speeches, etc. They had a permit for the rally but apparently blocked and occupied a street that was not part of the permit.

From there you have police saying they refused to clear the street and rally leaders saying they complied. That's where the confrontation occurred.

Meanwhile people manning the polls said there was no interruption for anyone who went to the actual polling place.

6. Honestly, will all the stuff going on nowadays, I think a "March to the Polls" was ill-advised. nt
