Madison (AP) — U.S. Justice Department officials say they plan to monitor elections in Wisconsin and Florida on Tuesday.
The Justice Department routinely deploys observers to monitor elections across the country, with an eye toward discriminatory voting practices, harassment and intimidation.
Both Florida and Wisconsin will hold primary elections on Tuesday.
The agency issued a statement Monday saying it plans to monitor polling sites in Florida’s Collier, Hendry, Lee, Osceola and Polk counties as well as in Milwaukee.
