Connecticut officials urge vigilance for voter intimidation

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A top Connecticut prosecutor, the attorney general and the secretary of the state have warned that voter intimidation will not be tolerated at the polls on Election Day. The officials stressed Thursday that there are federal and state laws on the books to ensure that voters feel safe and their ballots will be counted appropriately. Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said she and Attorney General William Tong and Deputy Chief State's Attorney Kevin Lawlor were not responding to any particular problems in Connecticut so far. She said tensions are running high and she wanted to make sure they're preparing for any possibilities on Election Day.
