Funny how folks jump to conclusions. The only protesters I could find out about today, in SM and SB, were a group of women urging people to vote and protesting against the Trump administration, the perceived threat to Roe v Wade and SCOTUS appointment. From the news on KEYT it didn't appear that they were harassing anyone.

"Perceived" threat? Uhhh, it's a REAL threat to Roe v. Wade, and we WON'T STAND FOR IT. We will NEVER go back to the dark days before Roe. So sick of having to fight for basic reproductive healthcare. UGhhhhhhh. It's 2020 and even Ireland, the most religious of Western countries, has legalized abortion, yet here we are in Puritanical hell.

11:37 - Interesting you talk of "jumping to conclusions," as you yourself say the only "protesters" you heard about were these women, yet you imply they were the subject of this alert. Got news for ya - could have been someone else.

Our Next Door site has some guy who is spreading false info about not receiving his ballot. I think the Trumpsters are just trying to stir the pot. There were dozens of people in the thread commenting on how the voting process for them had gone very smoothly. I think planting comments like this will be a strategy to rile voters. Please be informed and ignore these trolls.

At least on NextDoor you can report trolls to the moderators and then disable their comments so you don't have to see them again. It works pretty well.

@Pit, I generally agree with most of what you say. And I'm just as frustrated with the extreme right wing community members that live in this town. But, just because I disagree with them doesn't make them all trolls. A couple, ya probably, but the majority just have different views. With that said, I'm continuously shocked by how right wing a lot of our locals truly are.

Not all trolls here, but a surprising number of them are. I still only hear them criticize without any solutions that will help the 99% of us and not just the 1%. Anyone who starts off a post with "You ignorant fool" should lose their posting privileges.

Harassing voters to block them from depositing their ballot. Or panhandling or protesting in a high traffic public space. Initial report was too vague to tell, but interesting knee-jerk reactions on full display as expected. Thanks for sharing, everyone.

Everybody knows any problems in SB with voting are caused by Trumpers with nothing better to do with their Saturday than be fascist goons. Byzantium, your comments are trash as always.

Take some pepper spray or a cattle prod with you when you deliver your ballot to the box!

Just a data point here: dropped off my VBM ballot at the post office--signed & dated & no postage necessary--and thanks to BallotTrax.com I already know it was received and will be counted. Couldn't have been easier. Thank you, Santa Barbara County Elections Division and USPS!

I’m trying to decide whether to drop my ballot at the main post office or the admin building. Maybe I’ll go with the PO—not likely to have protestors there, are we?

Dropped off my ballot, YES, I voted for Biden/Harris and I'm proud of it. No problems, thank you Santa Barbara County Elections Division for making it easy.

How can anyone be proud of voting for either party in this election. It’s a truly dumb situation we find ourselves in That these are our two options. I can obviously see and understand voting for Biden, but being proud of it? That truly inconceivable to me...

A man who has served his country for decades, with sons in the military? Who loves his family and will listen to scientists? If you are not proud of this candidate, even if you disagree with his policies, then there is something wrong with you. Not even Melania is proud of the Donald.
