Sixteen incidents of alleged voter intimidation, harassment or election interference reported in NC
More than a dozen incidents of alleged voter intimidation, harassment or election interference have been reported to North Carolina elections officials since the start of early in-person voting.
In a news conference just ahead of election day, Karen Brinson Bell, the executive director of the State Board of Elections, said the 16 complaints included voters and election workers being yelled at, aggressive campaigning, and, in at least one case, some someone following a poll worker from the voting site to an election office and then to the election worker’s home.
These reports are under review by the board's investigative unit.
Brinson Bell said investigators will determine whether the case will be turned over to a district attorney or, defending on the circumstanced, the Department of Justice.
