US Justice Department will Ensure Integrity of Presidential Election

Washington, – In anticipation of the upcoming general elections, the US Justice Department Tuesday provided information about its efforts, through the Civil Rights Division and Criminal Division, to ensure that all qualified voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots and have their votes counted free of discrimination, intimidation or fraud in the election process.

On Election Day, Nov. 8, 2016, the Civil Rights Division will conduct monitoring in the field at polling places around the country. The Civil Rights Division attorneys in both the Voting and Criminal Sections in Washington, D.C., will be ready to receive election-related complaints of potential violations relating to any of the statutes the Civil Rights Division enforces.

US Attorneys’ Offices will work with specially trained FBI personnel in each district to ensure that complaints from the public involving possible voter fraud are handled appropriately.

In an earlier statement, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch had confirmed her confidence in the American electoral system. She also confirmed that is no risk of fraud in the election process.

In the third and final presidential debate with his rival Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump refused to say whether he would accept the results of the presidential election next month.
