Obama Issues Warning About Voter Fraud To Americans Attempting To Expose It

Those that are concerned about the potential for voter fraud and planning to keep an eye on things come Election Day may want to reconsider their plans. As Breitbart reports, the Department of Justice has sent out a press release that points out poll watchers should be mindful of voter intimidation laws.

The release walks through several different forms of election-related crimes, including impersonating voters and the buying and selling of votes themselves. It also points out that individuals who point out such things may “violate federal voting rights law.” The department specifically advises against confronting other voters, as well as taking video or images of suspicious instances.

While great pains have been taken to quiet the cries from the ‘rigged election’ crowd, the release from the DOJ paint an ominous picture for those that feel things may not be on the up and up. The majority of concerns are fairly simplistic: voters want to insure their voices are heard, and that all potential instances of fraud are weeded out by polling site representatives themselves.

That doesn’t sound like an unrealistic expectation, but there have been numerous instances from elections past in which voter and polling place behavior has been called into question. Those that feel as if they are being told to not report suspicious instances will only become even more suspicious themselves.

All’s not lost for those that think things seem amiss, as there is an online complaint form that can be filed. That being said, there’s no guarantee that filing the complaint forms will lead to immediate action.
