Fascinating. Seems to be missing New York though. That would be #19 on the list today, but would have topped the chart early on.
New York was the main port of entry for the virus and had to contain it without most of the later knowledge.Probably not representative.

Anyone would think they didn't want you to vote!
Where I live (Stockholm) voting takes about 20 minutes: 5 minutes walk to the nearest school, which is used for voting, 10 minutes voting, no queue if you are reasonably early, and then 5 minutes home. I'm impressed how dedicated those voters are.
Same here is Ontario. I've never had to wait in line. I did a quick google search and it seems that is not universally true in Canada. There are articles about lineups for advanced polls, and even on election day. Not 11 hours though. One article I read quotes a couple: "We've been standing there waiting for 10 minutes. We're in our 80s. It's ridiculous."
"New York was ... Probably not representative."It's probable that cases in blue states that got hit first are way undercounted. The Red states probably look worse because testing had ramped up by the time they got hit.
