The District Attorney's Office has received 68 calls about election day issues, but nothing out of the ordinary.

"This is what we train for, this is standard procedure and this what we expected," said Cameron Kline, spokesperson for the District Attorney's Office.

In Arizona, the secretary of state’s office released a long list last week describing illegal intimidating conduct, including blocking the entrance to a polling place, disrupting voting lines, raising one’s voice or taunting a voter or poll worker, or photographing or filming voters in a harassing manner.

The state also counts any aggressive display of weapons; using threatening, insulting or offensive language to a voter or poll worker; intentionally disseminating false information at a polling place; and directly confronting or asking voters for “documentation” or other questions that only poll workers should perform.

Six generally prevent guns in polling places (Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Texas).

Four others prohibit concealed-carry guns in polling places (Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska and South Carolina).

On the eve of Election Day, civil rights groups and local election officials were reminding voters of the state and federal laws protecting against voter intimidation and advising them where to go if they experience threats or harassment at the polls. Other examples include falsely presenting oneself as an elections official and spreading false information about voter requirements, such as the need to present a certain type of photo identification when there is no such requirement, according to the ACLU.

Anyone trying to keep a person from voting or to get them to vote a certain way constitutes voter intimidation, according to Election Protection, a nonpartisan voting rights coalition. Shouting and abusive language is also considered intimidation, according to the Brennan Center for Justice.

De Felice told the website the Department of Justice has contacted him about the issue with inspectors, and that he has filed a complaint with the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office.
