"Voter intimidation is still illegal in Michigan,” state Attorney General Nessel said. “Those who attempt to deter or interfere with someone trying to exercise the fundamental right to vote will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

Additionally, the state encourages to report any instances of voter intimidation to the Michgian Department of the Attorney General by calling 517-335-7659 or emailing miag@michigan.gov.
