Well, look at this. The Atlantic has a new piece out that says voting in-person is low risk AND they’re questioning if Dems will ever bother telling their voters about it:
“If You Can Grocery Shop in Person, You Can Vote in Person
Experts now say the health risk of casting an in-person ballot is relatively low. Will Democrats tell their voters that?”
Imagine if a Trump supporter had said this? Oh wait, they have:

Even better? It’s Zeke Emanuel who said it:
If you can grocery-shop in person, then you can vote in person.

Welcome to MAGA, Zeke:
As I told @russellberman: in-person voting is no more risky than going to the grocery store as long as we take same measures we all have become accustomed to since the spring: Wear a mask and line up at least six feet apart. https://t.co/PElAVbi6w4

“It’s like shopping”!
"It's like shopping." Public-health experts now say that in-person voting is as safe as going to the grocery store, with the proper precautions. Will Democrats get that message out to their voters? https://t.co/vdrw2tW587

FWIW, that voting has been “low risk” has been evident for months now:
I think we should allow anyone who doesn't feel safe to vote by mail AND ALSO, I think with the right precautions (most critically mandatory masks and hard limits on people inside at any one time) in-person voting should be relatively low risk.https://t.co/C4ERhc0F59

And Dems are behind:
"Republicans have already been aggressively reassuring their supporters that voting in person is safe. The question is whether Democrats will start to do the same."https://t.co/CZOLm7eg9q

And the reason they’re behind is because Dems listened to the panic-porn from . . . Zeke Emanuel:
On March 27, Ezekiel Emanuel said if the number of cases "is doubling every 3 to 4 days, that means that we'll have 100 million people who have COVID-19 in about 4 weeks."
He was off by 99,111,291.
Are there any consequences for being this wrong?https://t.co/SR3nBPW3VB

When will there be consequences for Biden adviser Ezekiel Emanuel getting his COVID-19 projection so, so wrong? https://t.co/ZuYmOK046O
