MILWAUKEE (AP) - Police officers will be patrolling election polls in Milwaukee Tuesday.

Police say the officers will be watching for disruptions, excessive demonstrations and for anyone inferring with the voting process. Authorities say anyone who has concerns about disruptions or bad behavior should call police.

Sgt. Tim Gauerke says officers patrolling in pairs will periodically visit the polling places in their district, but won’t be permanently stationed at the polls. Gauerke says the practice has been in place for major elections.

Politicking or demonstrated within 100 feet of the entrance to polling locations is prohibited. The number to report concerns to police is 414-935-1210.
