CBS News reports that federal officials have notified authorities in New York, Texas, and Virginia about a possible, “low-level” terror threat for Tuesday, November 8. These reports go on to say that polling stations may be targets for “lone-wolf” assailants.
When alerts like this come out, it’s important to note that this threat comes from unconfirmed, anonymous sources that officials are still investigating.
"Texans should go about their daily lives as usual,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “But remain vigilant over the next several days and report any suspicious activity.”
“We are doing everything we can to keep Virginians safe,” said Brian Coy, Communications Director to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. “We're confident they are going to be able to vote safely on Election Day.”
The FBI has yet to confirm or comment on the details of the report.
