Security threats abound before Election Day 2022

Adrian Holman

If you have voted early by using mail-in ballots or by going to your local county office to cast your ballot, then you have saved yourself from potential danger on Election Day on Tuesday. Warnings from four different governmental organizations (Department of Homeland Security, Federal Bureau of Investigation, National Counterterrorism Center, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) have been issued over the past month leading up to Tuesday.

Unfortunately, these threats of violence have been actualized throughout the country over the past month. On Sunday, a suspicious package with white powder was delivered to the headquarters of Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake. One of her staff members opened the package and is currently under medical observation. An investigation has been put in motion to find out who delivered the envelope to her campaign headquarters in Arizona.

One of the biggest political attacks that happened during this election window was when David DePape broke into the home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and hit her husband Paul Pelosi with a hammer in the middle of the night. DePape is currently being held in jail without bail.

Last week, a person attacked New Hampshire US Senate candidate Don Bolduc before a debate. Joseph Hart attempted to punch Bolduc in the head while Bolduc was greeting supporters outside of the debate.

Also in Arizona, a federal judge had to issue a restraining order to the political group Clean Elections USA for recording and taking pictures of people placing their mail-in ballots into approved drop-box locations throughout the state.

If you plan to vote on Tuesday, then make sure that you protect your neck on Election Day.
