Midterm Election Deniers Hinder Some Election Preparations

Trump supporters in Colorado have bombarded several county offices with document requests in an attempt to prove election fraud in 2020.

There have been reports in the state of Nevada of election workers being followed to their automobiles and then being threatened.

As a precaution against possible violence on Election Day, authorities in Philadelphia have shielded their ballot-processing center with bulletproof glass.

With only ten weeks to go until the 2022 midterm elections, scores of state and local officials around the country have told ABC News that activists still set on fighting the 2020 presidential elections are hindering election preparations with onerous public information demands, persistent threats against poll workers, and deadly misinformation campaigns.

A Wisconsin activist made one of these requests days after the summit, according to Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell's interview with ABC News. The request was lengthy and thorough, asking for a variety of material and providing suggestions for how local officials may find it. McDonell claimed he had as many as fifty such requests in just two days.

Poll offices will not comply with numerous requests for ballot records, data on voting equipment, or even the private details of election workers, according to election officials.

Supervisor of Elections Marc Early of Florida has stated that the increasing number of requests is making it harder to get the state ready for the next midterm elections.

A prominent state official in Michigan has accused election officials of wrongdoing. Clerk of Canton Township, Michigan, claims that former state senator Patrick Colbeck made so many requests for public records that he invited Colbeck to his office to observe the township's electoral management system in action in an effort to allay Colbeck's fears of voter fraud.

Colbeck, according to Siegrist, was unsatisfied with the visit and is now demanding that the Michigan township share the election administration system's source code.

According to Siegrist, such data are not susceptible to public disclosure under Michigan's FOIA regulations because they are confidential and a blueprint for election programming. If released, they may be used to hack future elections.

Colbeck, though, told ABC News that the time stamps connected with the votes cast records that the township has already provided are what he is looking for.

There has been a horrendous influx of requests for public records in Washoe County, Nevada. Election workers for both parties have been harassed and threatened.

According to the spokesperson for the county, Bethany Drysdale, election workers have reported being followed to their vehicles and intimidated with language such as "Traitors are dealt with."

Drysdale asserts that the harassment reached such a high level by the middle of June, just a few weeks after the primary elections in Nevada, that the voter registrar for Washoe County resigned. This prompted the Washoe County Commission to create a support plan to assist county employees who are unfairly publicly insulted, harassed, or demeaned by members of the public or political organizations.

Republican women in Reno criticized the initiative on social media, writing, "Is it 1984 in Washoe County?" The group, which has been at the forefront of training poll monitors and filing election challenges, has urged individuals to turn up and let your voices be heard at county commission meetings.

The ballot-processing center in Philadelphia has been fortified with bulletproof glass because city officials are so anxious about the upcoming midterm elections.

David Clements, a disgraced ex-professor who gained national notoriety by alleging widespread voter fraud, has been touring town hall meetings in Otero County, New Mexico, and challenging local leaders about the upcoming 2020 election.

Clements, who was expelled from New Mexico State University last year, has been touring the country in support of 2020 election audits. A week after appearing at Lindell's "Moment of Truth Summit," during which he pressed the Doa Ana County commissioners to examine election-related concerns, Lindell went back to New Mexico.
