ORANGE COUNTY, N.Y. -- Orange County is on the list of places that will have federal election monitors for Tuesday's elections.
The monitoring by the Justice Department is aimed at ensuring compliance with the Voting Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination in elections based on race, color or membership in a minority language group.
Observers will watch and record activities at polling locations, in conjunction with local election officials.
Anyone with reports of discriminatory voting practices, which includes acts of harassment or intimidation, can call the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division at 1-800-253-3931.
