Protests started to break out in cities across the United States. They come as several groups urge that every vote be counted in the 2020 presidential election. Many of these protests were led by Black Lives Matter and Shutdown DC.

Cities included in the effort included Washington, New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Portland, Ore., Fox News reported. Other cities that saw protests included Philadelphia and Minneapolis.

Referring to Wednesday protests, USA Today said that “tensions ran high into the night following a mostly peaceful start to the day.” There have been reports of “widespread violence” leading to the National Guard being deployed in Portland, Oregon. There were also arrests in Minneapolis and New York City.

More than a hundred events are planned across the country between Wednesday and Saturday.

Summarizing several updates, USA Today mentioned that groups of Trump supporters “gathered at the Arizona Capitol and in Las Vegas to demand election workers keep counting ballots. Meanwhile, demonstrators in Philadelphia were seen holding signs that said ‘Count every vote.’”

In New York City, the New York Police Department said more than 20 people “who attempted to hijack a peaceful protest by lighting fires, throwing garbage and eggs in Manhattan” were arrested on Wednesday.
