Overall, this affects some 670,000 Iowans, 30% of the state's registered voters. Those affected by the changes overwhelmingly live in the state's urban areas, which reliably vote Democratic.

Well there you go.

Who is responsible for making this decision?
We should strive to create a world of love and compassion. It may take a lot of time and effort, but it can be done.

Reading the article, it seems a split between a lack of poll workers and polling sites that do not want to take the risk of people being exposed.

I mean, having fewer polling places is worse for containing the virus, because it means there will be more people coming into the polling places that are still open.

Except the more polling sites there are the more people can socially distance.

This. It's a lie, and a bad one.
This is the duty of the Grim Angels.
