The Alachua County Supervisor of Elections is working with law enforcement after several threatening emails were discovered in the county.
According to the sheriff's office, the emails are purported to be from the Proud Boys. The sender claims to have personal information of the recipient and directs them to vote in a certain way, or else there will be consequences.
Supervisor of Elections Kim Barton released the following statement:
"We are in contact with and working in conjunction with our law enforcement partners at the local, state and federal level, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security. The Florida Department of State's Division of Elections has been notified as well.
If any individual engages in any form of voter intimidation, our office will refer the case to state and federal law enforcement."
