Election observers who monitor polling places and election counts will be required to wear face coverings in Ohio, and those who refuse could be removed from polling places.
Observers are allowed to move freely around assigned polling locations, but they are barred from interfering with or disrupting the election or trying to influence voters. They can leave the polling location to call the board of elections to raise grievances, but they cannot directly advocate for voters at the polling location, according to the states election manual.

All fascists are cowards.
If they wish to challenge someone, they say so to the election worker, who then determines whether the voter is properly registered and qualified.
We can't allow them to get away with things. Make sure that police chiefs or other heads of enforcement agree to swiftly take care of harassers.
