Outside some polling places, the Allegheny County Board of Elections posted reminders for voters, ranging from information about their rights to the proper voting screen that should appear.

According to the post, “an elector shall have the right to cast his or her vote..

  • without the use or threat of force; violence or restraint;
  • without the infliction or threat of infliction of injury;
  • without any other action intended to deny any individual’s right to vote.”

Jaclyn Rothenberg, the spokesperson for the Hillary Clinton campaign, said she has not heard any reports of voter intimidation at the polls. Volunteers at the polls said they could not comment on voter intimidation and directed The Pitt News to Rothenberg.

If a voter experiences any problems at the poll, they can call 1-877-VotesPa.

Signs outside polling places are also alerting voters that their vote will not count unless the final screen reads “Your ballot has been cast. Thank you for voting.”
