Prosecutors and local law enforcement agencies are working hard to prevent voter intimidation at the polls this Election Day.
“We’re protecting the integrity of the elections,” said Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren.
Warren says they’re dusting off the law books that deal with voter intimidation, which is an issue they haven’t dealt with this seriously in decades.
“This is a brave new world in terms of our elections,” he said.
Prosecutors around the Tampa Bay area are teaming up with local law enforcement agencies. Poll workers have been deputized as the first line of defense to limit the presence of uniformed officers some might also perceive as intimidating.
