Voters Express Concerns Over Intimidation

Two-thirds of voters are apprehensive about violent extremists. 

A new Reuters/Ipsos poll completed Monday shows two in five voters across America say they are concerned about threats of violence or other intimidation at polling stations during the country’s midterm elections. 

So far, no violent incidents have been reported at any early voting centers or ballot drop-off locations. However, officials in Arizona, a key battleground state, have asked the federal government to probe a case of possible voter intimidation after people casting ballots were conspicuously filmed and followed. An official complaint noted that the self-appointed monitors called the voters “mules,” a reference to those who carried multiple ballots to drop boxes in the 2020 election. 

The poll also found that two-thirds of registered voters are anxious over the possibility that extremists will carry out acts of violence after the election if they do not see the desired outcome.

Another fifth of voters said they were not confident their ballots would be accurately counted. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For election officials across the nation as they seek to ensure the integrity of the midterms.
  • For safety for poll workers and observers as they preside over the elections.
  • For the Lord’s will to be accomplished in the results of the midterms.
