In a town outside Atlanta, the president of a homeowners association sent an email to residents alerting them that the gates would be closed on Tuesday "to enhance controlled access to the community until we see what (if any) negative repercussions may occur because of the results of the election," according to the New York Times Caucus blog.

Bill Stanley, president of the Cottages of Woodstock, a community for people 55 and over, claimed that he followed the advice of the police chief of Woodstock, Ga.

However, the police chief told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "Certainly we would give no one that kind of information.”
