After the announcement that protests in opposition of the 2020 election results are scheduled in all 50 states leading up to the Jan. 20 presidential inauguration, some Austin businesses have boarded up their windows. Most, however, have decided not to bring out the plywood.
Downtown Austin prepared for the worst and boarded up several businesses in preparation for anticipated protests last week. Today, more than a week after Election Day, some businesses are finally taking the boards down.
