"Voter fraud concerns may cause intimidation, tension, and violent confrontations among voters, poll workers, and poll watchers at or near polling places," the Virginia assessment said. The assessment didn't cite Trump's calls for his supporters to monitor voting on Election Day. But it noted that, "Some poll watchers' presence may intimidate voters and poll workers," and that changes in federal election law have reduced the number of federal election observers stationed inside polling places to guard against voter intimidation. The Virginia Fusion Center cited a two-person armed protest in front of a Fluvanna County, Virginia campaign office, reports of campaign signs being set on fire in Fredericksburg and reports of campaign sign thefts in Prince William County, as well as a firebomb attack on a Hillsborough, N.C. campaign office "and similar incidents that have occurred in the United States in recent days." Media reports say two ชุดว่ายน้ำเอวสูง ig Trump supporters protested outside the Fluvanna County campaign office of Democrat Jane Dittmar two weeks ago to protest Clinton, unite like-minded Trump supporters and to make a statement after the Trump campaign's reported decision to write off Virginia. "He might be pulling out, but we're not pulling out, and I'm gonna stand my ground and speak out for what I believe in," protester Daniel Parks told the Huffington Post. Both men were carrying lawful sidearms but witnesses said they exposed them in an intimidating manner. The Virginia Fusion Center report also warned about possible trouble by the New Black Panther Party. During the 2008 Presidential election, NBPP members were observed standing outside a Philadelphia polling place wearing military clothing with batons on their belts. In 2012, members were observed "guarding" polling places in Philadelphia and Cleveland, and prior to the 2016 Republican National Convention, the group's chairman said, "If it is an open state to carry, we will exercise our Second Amendment rights." The senior federal law enforcement official would not discuss specifics about how authorities are on the lookout for signs of trouble, but confirmed that said some local, state and federal authorities are quietly watching known agitators to try to anticipate potential problems.
