Video from Detroit, in the mail-counting center, shows a man covering windows with signs to prevent partisan observers from overseeing the vote count.
According to state law, Michiganders are permitted to oversee the counting process.
A worried woman explained why she was wary of last-minute votes in Michigan.
She describes a “mysterious box” that arrived at 3 am with more than 30,000 ballots.
Another woman interviewed in the video said: “Republicans feel like they are locked in, that they are outnumbered, that they are silenced. And they think this system is set up so that the vote counting process is only overseen by Democrats.
In another video, police prevented citizens from entering the building while others placed boxes of pizza above windows to block their view.
A representative from the Detroit Department of Health attempted to address the group regarding social distancing.
A woman interviewed outside the building said she found 500 ballot papers whose names were not on the voters list at all.
She also confirmed that the Detroit Health Department had blocked entry of people due to COVID-19, claiming its “ability”.
Meanwhile, the Trump campaign on Wednesday filed a lawsuit in Michigan, calling for a halt to the vote count “until meaningful access is granted.”
The campaign wants to examine ballots that have been opened and counted without supervision and continue to observe the rest of the votes that need to be counted.
Responding to images of a man blocking the windows of the postal counting center, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said the process had been “bipartisan, transparent and open” from the start.
