Justice Department to Monitor Polls in 28 States
The United States Justice Department announced on Monday, November 7th that they have plans to deploy more than 500 personnel of their Civil Rights Division to 28 states to monitor the general election on Election Day. It is the role of the state and local governments to oversee and run elections on every level, but the U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department seems to be taking a little bit more of a substantial role. The Civil Rights Division is charged with making sure federal voting rights laws are in place and American citizen’s rights are “protected.” In Texas, the Civil Rights Division has been deployed to Dallas County (Dallas), Harris County (Houston) and Waller County (part of Katy and Ted Cruz’s Congressional District).
