The election integrity failure chronicle: 1000's, including 100 medical professionals, called for Illinois and 3 other states holding primary elections to postpone the vote. A DNC memo sent last week warned that states that delaying their primaries would bring penalties like halving their delegates. Gov. Pritzker announced the state’s first coronavirus death, yet voting went ahead as scheduled. At one polling location, 16-year-old volunteer Rebecca Gross told The Intercept that her precinct never received voting supplies, had to turn away every voter who arrived Tuesday to alternative locations, redirected to 2nd & 3rd polling locations, the 1st of which had two-hour waits. Gross said 5 of her fellow poll workers were elderly and the location was missing 2 election judges. Analysts said the coronavirus spread would help protect incumbents and disadvantage insurgent campaigns relying on new voter turnout.
