As the U.S. presidential election draws near, city governments and federal and local law enforcement across the country are preparing for social unrest around the elections on Nov. 03.

Reuters has learned that it’s not just the government, at all levels, preparing for what could be another round of chaos on the streets of big cities, but also corporate America has gathered intel that shows their store fronts  could be in danger. 

Reuters spoke with Aon Plc., the world’s largest insurance broker, who said many of their retail clients are mulling over the idea that they must prepare for social chaos around the elections. 

Aon executive MaryAnne Burke said 70% of their retail clients had their stores boarded up in May and June during nationwide protests; many of them have already started, or will likely soon begin boarding up for a second time.
