Violent Threats & Intimidation: VP Harris Reassures Polls Workers Amid GOP Assault On Election Laws

Vice President Kamala Harris hosted a group of election administrators and poll workers from across the US for a “frank discussion about the work, the responsibility, the commitment and challenges” facing election workers.

The White House meeting follows rising reports of intimidation and violent threats against election workers, typically nonpartisan local officials and volunteers who keep America’s elections on track, and restrictive election laws from Republican lawmakers targeting their work.

“You’re the people who make elections happen,” the vice president said on 21 July. “We dare not take the work of poll workers for granted.”
