The Alabama Black Woman’s Roundtable, Alabama Election Protection Network, ACLU of Alabama Foundation, Campaign Legal Center, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Lift Our Vote, and the Legal Defense Fund (LDF) have sent a letter to Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall urging him to make a public statement condemning intimidation of voters and election officials in Alabama prior to the November 8 election.

The organizations also requested that AG Marshall issue guidance on intimidation to help election officials take corrective action, including providing them with de-escalation measures and ways to report instances of intimidation to minimize the risk of disenfranchisement. Urgent action by the Attorney General is needed to ensure open and equal access to the ballot on Election Day.
