Violence against Election Workers

A Department of Justice task force — who has been reviewing threats of violence against election workers— announced their findings on Monday.  

Earlier this year, VICE News’ Madeline May reported on how workers in Georgia were harassed and terrorized during the 2020 elections. 

This week, we revisit Madeline’s investigation and give an update about how the U.S. is addressing the threat of violence as a form of protest in the lead up to the 2022 elections.
