(CNSNews.com) – The Rev. Al Sharpton said his National Action Network would be involved in “poll watching brigades” in Tennessee to prevent any voter suppression or intimidation.
“One of the things that we announced today is that we are starting brigades here in Tennessee, voting poll watching brigades,” Sharpton said Friday.In a very close presidential race, questions have been raised about voting integrity.
Republicans, who have supported voter ID laws, fear that ineligible voters will cast ballots, pointing out that dead voters are listed on the rolls, while some living voters’ addresses are not updated to reflect the precinct they currently live. Democrats counter that such laws could suppress voter turnout.
