Independent Editor,

   I am concerned that the Sheriff’s Office and individual police departments within the county are not taking the possibility of threatening conditions of violence at polling sites seriously this year. After AG Dana Nessel’s announcement banning open carry guns near polling places, I suspect that even more guns will show up on November 3rd out of spite for law and order, and the freedom to vote.

   This is voter suppression by a minority of our democracy, and I would like details of protection for citizens at polling places to be published by the Shiawassee County sheriff, and in concert with local police departments the plan be reviewed by any governing body applicable.

   Anything short of that leads to anarchy.
