Justice Department Election Day Program to deal with election fraud

277

The U.S. Attorney’s Office is reminding residents about election fraud during this election season and they say that officials will be on duty to ensure illegal voting does not occur.

Guam – The Department of Justice is taking the lead to deal with election fraud with its nationwide Election Day Program.

 

A press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office states that those photographing or videotaping voters at polling places under the pretext of uncovering illegal voting may violate federal voting rights laws. The release states that federal law protects against crimes such as intimidating or bribing voters, buying or selling votes, impersonating voters, altering vote tallies, stuffing ballot boxes, and marking ballots for voters without their input.

In order to respond to election fraud complaints this Nov. 8, U.S. Atty. Alicia Limtiaco says that Asst. U.S. Atty. Marivic David will be on duty while polls are open. FBI Special Agents will also be available in each field office.

Election fraud complaints can be made to AUSA/DEO Marivic David at (671) 479-4120, or directly to the FBI by calling (671) 688-0373.
