US election: Worries about violence, security and delayed results has officials on high alert

Global News published this video item, entitled “US election: Worries about violence, security and delayed results has officials on high alert” – below is their description.

Americans aren’t accustomed to worrying about violence or safety ahead of an election. It’s a luxury afforded by years of largely peaceful voting, a recent history of fairly orderly displays of democracy. But after months filled with disease, disruption and unrest, Americans are worried that Election Day could become a flashpoint. Jackson Proskow has more about how officials are on high alert in the final days before the election, with an intense focus on fears of widespread fraud, intimidation and cyber attacks. Plus, Jeff Semple reports on the concerns regarding how Michigan’s militias may respond to election results, as claims from President Donald Trump that the only way he can lose the election is if the vote is rigged have caused unease about how some supporters might react.
