Will resolve YES if there is a front-page article on https://www.nytimes.com/ regarding voter intimidation from extremist groups on either Election day (November 5th) or the day after (November 6th).

Will resolve NO if the deadline passes without resolution.

I'm gonna take a guess here that the dates of Nov 5 and 6 refer to the article being published, not to when voter intimidation has happened?

Also, what happens when the supremacists threaten voters during primaries or early voting periods?

predicts NO

@BrunoParga As long as there’s an article about it on election day I’ll resolve it as Yes. I guess I’ll ignore any earlier articles? Unless there’s a better idea, realizing now the timing here ruins the spirit of the question.

@TadasRimkevicius sorry, it is still unclear to me if articles reporting this has happened, coming out before the election, resolve this as YES or don't affect resolution. It seems to me they would, that's what I'm getting, but I wanted to make sure.

predicts NO

@BrunoParga My intent was to ask if articles will come out on election day itself, regardless of when the intimidation happens. Would there have been a better way to phrase the question?

@TadasRimkevicius I guess I'd phrase it as "Will the New York Times report, on Election Day or the day after, cases of voter intimidation from extremist groups?"

predicts NO

@BrunoParga That's actually much better, thanks for your input I'll keep that in mind next time.

@TadasRimkevicius it's totally up to you if you want to do it or not, but you probably want to know that you can edit this question :D no need to wait for next time if you don't want to. Most of the time editing the wording of a question is a bit iffy, but this seems to fit perfectly within the exception that clarifying a question is okay and desirable.
