I spoke with Michael McDonald, founder of the United States Elect Project, who said there are “record numbers of people voting early in a number of states.” I also talked to Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, who told me that her organization is keeping a close eye on voter intimidation tactics across the country before and on Election Day: She said, “This is an election cycle where there’s been a dark cloud of voter security measures.”
