ABC News: Threats, pressures faced by poll workers pose 'existential threat to our democracy,' experts warn
"These election workers are feeling the brunt of former President Trump and various Republican allies lying about the election," said Sylvia Albert, voting and elections director for the government watchdog group Common Cause. "All of a sudden, these election workers are part of some vast conspiracy."
Albert says that what election officials have described represents "a level of threat and intimidation against election officials that you just don't see in a democracy."
"We're seeing election officials receive death threats, they've been doxed, they're in hiding," Albert said.
The prospect of experienced election workers resigning from these already "thankless jobs," as Albert described them, raises an even more troubling question: Who will replace them?
