Voter intimidation has been reported in other parts of the country as well.
The Arizona Secretary of State's office has sent 18 referrals of voter intimidation to police, a spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. On Oct. 24, the Arizona Secretary of State's Office said in a news release that it had reported six potential voter intimidation cases and one reporter of election worker harassment to law enforcement.
“Voter intimidation is illegal, and no voter should feel threatened or intimidated when trying to vote," Katie Hobbs, Arizona's Secretary of State, said in a news release. "Anyone attempting to interfere with that right should be reported. Voter harassment may include gathering around ballot drop boxes questioning voters, brandishing weapons, taking pictures of people voting and following or chasing voters who are attempting to drop off their ballots, and it can all be considered voter intimidation. It is unacceptable."
The complaints were referred to the Department of Justice and Arizona Attorney General's Office for further investigation, according to the news release.
There have been 16 cases of voter intimidation, harassment or interference of voters in North Carolina since the start of early voting, Patrick Gannon, a spokesperson for the North Carolina State Board of Elections told BuzzFeed News. The incidents included an observer getting too close to a voter and an observer yelling at a voter when they were using their phone magnifier.
Karen Brinson Bell, the executive director of the North Carolina State Board of Elections, said they are investigating the incidents and will determine if they need to be reported to police.
One guess as to what the majority of these people are politically motivated by.

The infighting and finger pointing right now is kind of funny. Maybe if a Republican loses even with a Trump endorsement, they weren't Republican enough. They betrayed his trust!
