County and state elections leaders across North Carolina are warning anyone thinking of trying to intimidate voters that they could be criminally charged, ranging from a misdemeanor to a felony.

Tuesday, Nov. 3, 80 polling sites will open across Buncombe County. Attorney General Josh Stein warned those who might come to polls to try and intimidate.

“The precinct judge has the power to call in law enforcement and have anyone engaged in criminal behavior arrested,” said Stein.
