If you run into armed groups at the polls…

Georgetown Law has a division called the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection, and they have put together information for all 50 states concerning unauthorized militias. Since Trump has threatened the election and the country by calling out armed vigilantes, it’s possible you could run into some of these people when you vote in-person.

Addressing the rise of unlawful private paramilitaries

ICAP has created fact sheets for all 50 states explaining the laws barring unauthorized private militia groups and what to do if groups of armed individuals are near a polling place or voter registration drive. Select a state from the menu below to view the corresponding fact sheet.

They also offer advice on what to do if you encounter intimidation at your polling place (.PDF document).

Be aware. Stay informed.
