LANSING, Mich. — Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel on Monday joined seven other states in condemning voter intimidation.

Along with Nessel, the attorneys general representing Illinois, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin emphasized the right of every citizen to cast their ballot free from harassment.

“Voter intimidation is illegal in every state – whether it happens in-person or from a car,” the attorneys general said in a statement. “As state attorneys general, we are working closely with our partners in law enforcement to make sure everyone has safe access to the polls. Voters have the right to cast a ballot free from intimidation or harassment, and we won’t tolerate anything less. People who witness concerning behavior should immediately report it to law enforcement authorities.”
