Thank God. Unquestionably the right decision, but there is no upper bound to Republican attempts to disenfranchise people.

Haven't the GOP achieved a partial victory here anyway?

The mere threat of votes being thrown out would have dissuaded many from using this method to vote, just in case the ruling went against them.

It must be something of a disappointment that the verdict was published so quickly.

Not really. In this instance, the votes in question were already cast.

"I wanted to use to drive-through voting option but I heard that some judge may throw them all out anyway. Guess I may not bother going"

This is definitely not a model voter, but it is placing a chilling effect on a person who intended to vote. If offering rides on request to a polling location boosts the vote, then baseless lawsuits that could sow disinformation about whether votes even matter suppresses them.

I think the thread should be locked because a Republican judge threw out the Republican challenge.

Many non-Republican voters have been saying over and over they will vote against MAGA no matter what this election. Standing on line in the freezing cold or crawling over broken glass or anything to get this corrupt group out of the White House.

And the procedure and rules for "drive-in voting" were set and approved by a Republican governor and state government.

The option for drive-in voting was available to the entire state of Texas, but only one part of the state chose to use it. True, it was a heavily democratic area.

It seems that the Trump campaign asked Pennsylvania counties for whereabouts regarding where they store the ballots which leads to
the question why would they need such information unless they intend to somehow manipulate/steal/dispose of/sabotage those ballots.

President Trump's campaign asked at least three counties in Pennsylvania for a rundown of highly specific election security plans —
including ballot storage locations and transportation details — according to an email obtained by NBC News. The Pennsylvania secretary of
state has advised counties not to disclose election security information to any third parties and has reached out to the FBI

I SERIOUSLY doubt there is any plan whatsoever to raid and destroy ballots. People need to stop with the hand-wringing. Should there be some concern that Trump will try and litigate the crap out of this election, sure. But the notion that they're planning to destroy ballot storage facilities is just absurd with no basis in reality. No need to make up more crap to be scared about.

Since a federal judge has now thrown out the challenge, thread is locked.
