GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Some voters in Greenville County say they are worried about intimidation on Election day.

The Greenville News reported (https://grnol.co/2eLAk9U ) that election officials have instructed poll workers to make sure that those supporting candidates follow the state’s rules.

Anyone can campaign on Election Day more than 200 feet away from a polling place. They can hold signs and hand out material.

Greenville County election director Conway Belangia says people can also campaign within 200 feet of a polling location as long as they don’t wear anything related to a candidate or party and do not hand out materials.

Belangia says some people don’t like being approached about their vote just before they go in to cast their ballots.

He says there’s a fine line between solicitation and intimidation.
