Emails sent to Alaskans on Tuesday warned them to "vote for Trump or else"

Alaskans across the state received emails Tuesday morning warning them to “vote for Trump or else,” in an incident that’s drawn the attention of the FBI and the state Division of Elections.

In emails and social media posts, more than a dozen Alaskans reported that messages were sent to people in Anchorage, Eagle River, Soldotna, Kenai, Homer, Juneau, Sitka, Petersburg, Ketchikan, Bristol Bay, Denali Park, Palmer and the Fairbanks area.

News reports from Florida indicated that the same messages were sent to at least 183 voters there.

In a copy of the email shared by Anchorage resident Kane Stanton, the sender told Stanton that “we are in possession of all your information (email, address, telephone).”

2. And how do the senders of those emails expect to know

just how their targets vote?

I'm awaiting a coherent answer. I mean, no matter how you vote, it's still a secret ballot, right?
