Women block voting line because they refuse to wear masks inside building: ‘Are these Jim Crow laws?’

A video circulating social media shows two women holding up a voting line in DuPage County, Illinois, because they apparently refused to wear masks inside the building. At one point, one of the women compares mask mandates to “1930s Jim Crow laws.”

The video starts out showing a voter chastise the women, telling them, “Why don’t you go to the back of the line so all these people can vote?”

“Are these 1930s Jim Crow laws then?” one of the women fires back. “I have every right to stand here just like you do.”

Another man tried to reason with them, but to no avail.

“It doesn’t matter — it’s none of your business,” the woman says.

Later in the video, a poll worker emerges from the building telling the women to wait at the end of the line, but they continued to argue.
