    I would like to hear this from every state

  2. Prosecute them all. Show them what “Law and Order” actually means.

    • Trump’s dimwits will just show up at the poll sites and think they can stand around asking questions and challenging voters’ rights to vote. Interesting that you have to go thru training and sign an affidavit saying you will keep your mouth shut. Good luck with that.

    • Don’t forget the hustle. Most of this is a all song and dance. All of this foolishness is based on “The great Greek Tragedy”. Make sure you get the facts about how this works.

    Well said! We like hearing that people are preparing to unite in a lawful manner to defend our US Constitution and democracy from the violent Republican domestic terrorists.

    Come on Americans Were Tall Strong and Proud.Voting is what We Do.

  5. Bravo to the AG for bringing up how he has and will prosecute not only those who intimidate but those who have and will attempt to vote twice. This is what the country needs to hear from all states. Don the Chump’s gaslighting needs to be silenced.

    • @jperiodchapin as a top comment, my guess is that it was copied from another (real) commenter and then the bots went a little crazy upvoting and repeating it. Look at the user names of all these accounts. Get out and vote everybody, not just Nevada!

    • @jperiodchapin nope.

    • @Jay Grewe Then why applaud without understanding what is going on? I am a Nevada resident and the best thing we do is to keep the rest of the country from knowing what a crap-hole democrat state we are. We don’t want to lose your gambling money to survive. Clark county, were Vegas is, is one of two blue counties. The rest of the state is solid red. The city of Las Vegas is trash and the area around the Strip is trash. The democrats, that have tricked the idiots in Clark County to vote from them, are destroying our community just like Seattle and Portland. The threat from the AG to stop poll watchers from keeping calling out the cheating demotards is perfect propaganda.

    • @codent I am very much a real resident of Nevada. Mine is a current and accurate post of the climate in this State.

    Trump is a dark cloud on American democracy and civility. There is no silver lining, only poison in this cloud.

  7. Kathleen Austin | October 1, 2020 at 12:02 PM | Reply

    Judges will throw him out if he goes to court!!! You CAN’T claim chaos…when your the one creating CHAOS!!!! He started with the post office’s!!!

  8. Good for him! I bet there will be more than a few arrests around the country if more honest state officials take this stance.

    • honest state officials like this democrat,ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha,please ha ha ha ha ha ha,show me an honest democrat official and I’ll show you a mirage !!! All democrats in power are corrupt beyond belief

    • @dan isch 👈🏼 Fake Page ⚠️

    • @Biker 06 Yeah, they’re everywhere, trolling the lib sites. Russian bots? Inbred Trumpers? I just ignore them. They’ll crash and burn, just like their fuhrer. Pathetic.

    If these “poll watchers” talk to any voters the arrest them even if they’re armed with their AR15 weapons.

    • Visit your state government’s webpage and learn the law for citizen’s arrests. Don’t do it if you aren’t clued up and ready to die to protect the vote, but know the law – especially in case one of the undeputized illegal militia members tries to detain you.

      Deprivation of rights under color of law carries the death penalty if bodily injury occurs

    • that’s one way to take their guns away

  10. Notify the polling officer, then call news stations. People need to be alerted.

    • Get video evidence.

    • When I poll watched for both of Obama’s campaigns, we had phone numbers of attorneys who specialized in election law that we could call if needed. We were in every precinct

      Poll watching is very important. Poll watchers are witnesses. And we can nip it in the bud if anyone tries to cause trouble

    If you go to vote in person…
    bring backup.

  12. If someone menaces you at the polls call the police.

  13. It’s the religious who put the White Supremacist in place; they’re having a hard time keeping their figurative masks in place.

    • @My friend Jimmy you are correct, the real problem is people. The people who created that monster, evil god.

      @Abstract Thought why?

    • @Gloria Smith go to a different church.

    • Abstract Thought | October 1, 2020 at 9:24 PM | Reply

      @Lucky Baldwin it is the ultimate form of arrogance to presume to know God. Especially when you act like your interpretation of a divine being is somehow more legitimate than anyone elses. 2500 years ago they worshipped a pantheon of gods every bit as zealously as you worship your one God. And Jesus Christ hadn’t even been born yet. To be christian is to be willfully ignorant.

      @Gloria Smith That strong feeling inside you comes from God and is His way of showing you the correct path. Listen to it. I’ve fought that feeling in my younger days and went my own way and things kept going bad. I’m sure now that was God’s way of telling me I was on the wrong path. When I finally started listening to it, things started going much better. When you’re on the right path, things will just fall into place like magic. God works in mysterious ways and speaks to you, not with a roar, but with a whisper. I’ve learned that God’s children are all filled with love and I’m sure you’re one of His. I wish you the best of luck.

  14. Put them in cages near polling stations and put a basket of rotten tomatoes near by. 3 days in a cage awaiting court.

    Finally someone who isn’t sucking up to the attempted Fascist intimidation.

  20. We need all our governors and AG’s to unite against voter intimidation. Sadly, I know that it will be ignored by many republican governors and AG’s.
