Virginia voter registration extended after website crash
"Election. 2020 Virginia voters got an extra day this year to register to vote. Sabrina Marino of the Richmond Times. Dispatch joins us on this story, Sabrina Marino explained what happened yesterday that led to today's extension. Yeah. So you know, yesterday with the whirlwind, as with everything nowadays, it kind of started with the tweets. And so yesterday morning, the Virginia Department of Elections posted that Horizon Cable was cut near the headquarters of an agency that you know, provided technical support for various states. Entities, you know, including the Virginia Department of Health and Virginia Employment Commission and, of course, the Virginia Department of Elections. So, basically the elections website crashed, which meant that on the last day for Jenny residents coded register to vote, they couldn't online for several hours and then also impacted. Early in person voting with Freddie Starr's offices statewide, you know, fighting that they couldn't access the full books or verify voter eligibility, and even though it was prepared by 3 30 called it already mounted to extended registration deadline, which is something that the governor did not have the authority to do and said So in his briefing, and then hours later, a lawsuit was filed. How is that cable cut? So there was a roadside utilities project in Chesterfield County, and, you know, they released a statement kind of thing that it was quote. Inadvertently struck and there's not more information other than not, and they're saying it was an accident. And that roadside utilities project is a super installation. And that happened in the early morning yesterday and that part of you been in the works since May. And it was right next to the headquarters of the major agency. That kind of is the you know, the technical support for for a lot of state agencies. So their website crashed. You mentioned the governor's involvement here. How hard is it to change a voter registration deadline in the Old Dominion? So from what I've done will be gathered. It's pretty difficult and you know, they're the governor's legal counsel, said yesterday in the briefing that they don't have the authority to just change the registration deadline that is in, you know in the state coat and that on DH You know they were talking about how that is kind of litigation. It takes the courts and they couldn't violet themselves. They sighted legal procedures for that, and So it takes litigation where it takes the General Assembly and so happened back in 2016. There was a computer glitch right before the 2016 election also occurred. You know, in October and there was There's a lawsuit filed again and back then Virginians were given a 36 hour extension to register. But back then it was, you know, a plaintiff has to file the lost two and both times the lawyers Committee for Civil Rights under law was the person who filed it on behalf of you know, advocacy groups and people who kind of register to vote. Is there any way of finding out who tried to register yesterday and couldn't and to reach out to them or what's being done to let them know about the extension through tomorrow? Yeah, so right now we do not have You know specific numbers of how many people weren't able to vote. But the lawsuit was filed with the intent to explain how this is out of voters of control and that the website crashing impacted thousands of voters with a disproportionate impact on black, indigenous and Latino people. And so part of the lawsuit Also included that Register's office. State officials had to issue press releases by 11:38 A.m. this morning, you know, kind of for local writer Sharp to be notified of this order. And so that was also a part of what the federal judge ruled today was, you know? Yes, we're extending the deadline and Virginia 11 59 on Thursday, but You also have to issue project leases. And so that was a way to kind of push the state butt and make sure that you know registrars were aware that this extension was granted and that people could be registering to vote, You know, passed yesterday deadline. Was there Anybody arguing against the extension? So we haven't seen it yet? Of course. We were seeing new kind of change by the hour. But, you know, even Republicans were plotting decision and they weren't at the Sarah. We You know, having pushed back against the decision, but against Northern administration, they said that it was a failure of the states for letting this happen. And even the defendant, Virginia Department of Elections Commissioner this morning said that you know this kid eligible Virginia's additional time to register or update their current voter registration record, and in a statement, the Republican Party You know, kind of made a joke that was like, you know, make sure next time you call Miss Utility and so and then I've been different than other states. You know, in Florida, there was pushback when lost me. Their registration deadline was pushed and challenged in the courts. And but we're not really seeing that right now with Virginia, with the exception that the Republican Party Did say that it was Northern Administration's fault. And besides that I have not seen pushback otherwise is their efforts to ensure that the voter registration system isn't tied to one cable in the future. Or is that something we're expecting in the coming days and weeks? Yeah. So in the briefing yesterday, Some of the Northern administration was talking about how you know this cable would put on a 10 gigabyte circuit and it was placed in the spring due to Corbett because of the increased workload because of You know a lot of traffic, a lot of people working from home, so they needed a backup, but the back of To that was not strong enough. And with the innovation of people going to register online, you know the backup wasn't enough. And so that's what they were kind of explaining, And they said, you know that they're working on pushing. So in the event that something like this were to happen, the backup would be able T sustain it and so That's kind of where we're at right now. And and yeah, and that's why that's why they were thinking. All right. Next time. You need a better backup. Um, but us for next step. We haven't heard much on that. Sabrina Marino

westbound at the seven ten got a brush fire but a connector there to the seven ten north bound and a suspected or slowing in the area and in central LA one ten north of Florence crash blocking the right lane slowing beginning at the one oh five it's four twenty this is All Things Considered from NPR news I'm ari Shapiro and I'm Mary Louise Kelly the trump administration today redefined what counts as sex discrimination in health care and health insurance the change comes in the form of a new rule from the department of health and Human Services here to explain is NPR health policy reporter Selena Simmons Duffin Hey Selena hi Mary Louise what is this new rule what's he gonna do well a big piece of it has to do with what's called section fifteen fifty seven of the affordable Care Act that is the part of the lot that deals with non discrimination and when the law passed back in twenty ten it was prohibited for hospitals or doctors or others to discriminate based on race color age disability or sex so then a few years later the office for civil rights at HHS I'm in the Obama administration issued a rule and said okay when it says sex is protected we want to clarify that that includes gender identity so transgender people were explicitly protected so today with the trump administration is doing is reversing that and taking out those references to gender and those explicit protections for transgender people and why what is the reason being given for making this change the trump administration has said it's reducing confusion that sax means male or female nothing more and it's saving around six sorry three billion by nixing requirements to mail notices of non discrimination protections alright so this new rule are you understand will take effect in early August so this summer what will it mean for people what actually changes well it means a transgender person could be denied care for a check up or flu because of their gender identity now this is a hypothetical it could be that NO one discriminates more because of this rule but critics still worry there could be a chilling affect transgender people are already really vulnerable they're already likely to avoid medical care in a pandemic I've heard a lot of people finding it concerning that there the trump administration is finalizing a rule that could in effect limit access to care for a vulnerable group I talked to Mari breed she's transgender and a freelance writer who lives outside Detroit and she called the rule terrifying she said she's worried about what it means for corona virus testing and treatment here's what she told me the way it reads to me people could refuse to collect your coping it stops and then because they don't want to touch a trans person I wouldn't it concerns like that are put to the trump administration Selena what is the response so the rule was released today without a press call so I wasn't able to ask that question directly to the trump administration but he did talk to a supporter of this role Ryan Anderson at the heritage foundation which is a conservative think tank and here's what he said I think that is about to there we want to make sure that people regardless of their gender identity have access to medical care that's a reasonable concern but he still thinks this rule is necessary as a reset of Obama era executive over reach and what he'd like to see is a new law from Congress that protects transgender people from general discrimination but also protects providers who don't want to provide gender transition related care for example and just real briefly if you'd like a lot of rules on executive actions from the trump administration is this likely to end up in the courts absolutely we're very likely to see lawsuits and trying to block this rule or put it on hold all right NPR's Selena Simmons Duffin thank you thank you Virginia governor Ralph Northam says it's time to take down the statue of Confederate commander Robert E. leave it stands over Richmond's the state's capital he was speaking on this program last week one one you know drives into the city and she's like a six story tall statue of our individual that that fall to earth for for slavery it's just not acceptable anymore now a lawsuit seeks to block the governor's order and a judge has demanded that the statue remain standing for now meanwhile other Confederate statues and landmarks to slavery continue to topple an obelisk in Birmingham Alabama a slave auction block in Fredericksburg Virginia and in Richmond a statue of Confederate president Jefferson Davis torn to the ground by protesters this week joining us now to talk about the history of these controversial symbols is Michael Paul Williams columnist at the Richmond times dispatch newspaper welcome thank you for having me to start with this Robert E. Lee statue is the largest of the statues on Richmond's monument Avenue it was erected in eighteen ninety after reconstruction can you just describe the symbolism behind the statue then and now well put yourself in the shoes of a newly emancipated black person in Richmond some twenty five years after Manson patient and you see this massive monument going up it's hard not to imagine that those individuals not filled with terror at what they were witnessing it sent a clear message and what would you say it stands for today I think it stands for pretty much the same message that for eighteen ninety it's white supremacy as somebody who's been writing about I'm pushing for this for years does this moment that we are in now feel inevitable to you or does it feel like something that you thought might never come it kind of feels like a dream you wonder if it's really happening for so long people do not listen for so long people were unmoved and then something horrible happens in a in a city a half a continent away and everyone's moving in everyone's feeling what you felt could you speak to a listener who might not have thought deeply about this and might think why remove the history the statues been there for decades while I tear it down tear it down because it should not have been there in the first place I would challenge that person to cite any example anywhere in the globe where a nascent nation rose up in opposition to the existing one with soldiers who were sworn to be U. S. soldiers effectively committing treason turning against their killing US soldiers all in defense of enslavement of black human beings and then twenty five years after the war when you would think the issue is settled and by the way against the advice of general Robert E. Lee who did not want my teammates they are wrecked the statues to not so much tell history it's not history but to erect massive bronze and granite statues of propaganda to effectively try to gaslight us into believing this was something other than what we all knew what was which was a war to defend the right to enslave the symbolism has bled into reality and they've done wonders to help perpetuate the white supremacy the continued to plague this nation and manifest itself in the death of George Floyd if this nation's ever going to be whole if it's ever going to heal you've got to get rid of this cancer in these monuments are cancer in the America's body politic do you have a vision of what would take the place of these monuments to the confederacy on these now empty pedestals they could be monuments to reconciliation they could be monuments to the African American struggle which until recent years was not told in statuary they could be visions of where we want to be instead of celebrations what we never should have been Michael Paul Williams is a columnist at the Richmond times dispatch thank you for talking with us thank you for having this is NPR news KCRW's sponsors include a better global helping companies to grow and transition into the modern workplace with.

having gone a week without it hashtag first will problems okay why the expletive I did they use to build houses water heaters in the attic drain the water heater remember where you're a main and your water main key are before you urgently need them is important ma'am I got but with the game he okay he got the water off he's he also wrote Richard body part with ways he couldn't complain at last fifteen twenty years three a couple of things in that little blurb right there one water heaters do last a little bit better longer than they used to when I first are doing this I would say eight years and you're done getting fifteen years out of water heater isn't that rare I think mine's every bit of that age I keep an eye on it but it's every bit at age second thing is and why do people put water heaters and addicts they did that for two decades in fact they still do it and it's mostly because they didn't figure out where to put the water heater in the first place an empty water heater doesn't weigh very much getting it up into that space is easy in fact I had some people ask me one time to change out their water heater it was in the attic it was at the far end of the attic you had to crawl through all these cross beams to even get to it I did a little research found out all the water heaters had been set with a crane I gave a prize they said well that's awfully expensive it don't you want to give us a better price because everybody in this neighborhood gonna want to do it I'm like it's twice as much work as it usually is so if you do have a water heater in the attic get it out of there it is hard to drain it it's hard to keep an eye on it my father likes to tell the story about he went into a house not only do they have a water heater in the attic they had three dead ones up there the former plumbers just didn't want to haul the old ones out of the attic now where your main water valve is and where your water key are are both important you do not know where your

"I we're gonna get to Michael Phillips here shortly from the Richmond times dispatch talk about Redskins minicamp. Plus he wrote a story yesterday about the Redskins in the injuries that they've had they've been the most injured team here over the last two years, and he wrote a story about that. And what they're trying to figure out as it relates to their injuries. But we'll talk clearly a minicamp as well. The nets lost last yesterday. Aaron again, this was a different script in that. They got behind early very early heloc gave up four in the first they were down six nothing after the second. And then they rally actually had the bases loaded down seven three in the ninth with the tying run at the plate. And and I think it was eaten who ended up striking out there at the end. But it is now fourteen and twenty two they're a bad defensive team. They're struggling to score. With the exception of Strasbourg even their starting pitching. A an issue at times. Clearly there bullpens been an issue and now they start this series tonight with the dodgers who right now have the best record in the National League. Yeah. I mean, it it's not good and the defense of things the alarming thing because for the entire preseason up through opening week day Martinez was really saying, you know, this is gonna be a great fundamental team.

"Well, Mikey Garcia said he saw something and Spence. That's why he took the spike in aerospace and saw something that he could take advantage of and win so far. It has not materialized though. So far what he's seeing is taking a beating you've seen a lot of Aerosmith suspicious. So after six rounds, I've got it. Generously. Generously. Five rounds the one for aerospace, given Mikey the second round. Although you could scored a shutout. I know the the pay per view judges having a shutout right now. I I gave Mikey the second round.

"Eight forty five here on this Monday morning. Je catch this over the weekend. Now, the Richmond times dispatch the paper of record for the capital of the Commonwealth has announced that this is the last year that their editorial page will be offering endorsements for candidates now. I mean, usually it's not a big surprise with endorsements from the times dispatch, they tend I think even they acknowledge they tend to endorse Republican candidates based on economic issues and occasionally some social issues. Has routinely been relatively conservative editorial page A, certainly by most standards, if you look at the spectrum nationally, and I kept I read a couple of times this morning. The explanation that the publisher Tom Silvestri has has offered as to why they would stop doing this. And I keep coming back to maybe we are such a divided society. The offering these endorsements immediately loses you at least in the short term a certain number of people who want to read the paper who just say, I'm mad that you endorsed a Republican candidate. So I'm going to cancel and who knows maybe they pick their subscription back up in a couple of months, but you don't wanna lose customers or maybe the advertisers wind up saying, why do you have to do this? You know, we want to advertise in the newspaper. So do you have to alienate people this way? I'm Tom seems to be indicating that it's a trend. With a lot of newspapers that their their main goal as a paper is to provide factual information from the news side, and the editorial side, no matter how often they tried to explain it to people that the editorial side is segregated from the news division, and that the two don't mix people just don't buy it. I'm not sure this is the way to go about it. And and I I as somebody who wants this paper to survive, I think it's important for the times dispatch to be there. And it's a great source of information in this community, and I'm disappointed when I come back to Richmond. And I see how their elements of the paper that used to be uniquely local that aren't they earn more. I'd still think it needs to survive. I'm worried that this just a step towards more ill irrelevancy in in Richmond. And in Virginia. Maybe I'm wrong. But it seems to me dropping something like that just makes you less of a force to deal with in the community. You can bet I'm not gonna stop talking about issues. I don't know how you increase your readership by doing that. But you know, they know their own business. It's it's certainly a big change. That deserves notation eight forty eight on.
