Erie County District Attorney John Flynn has announced he is assigning an assistant DA to act as a liaison for the Buffalo Police Department to answer any questions and review any complaints concerning voter intimidation, fraud or other prohibited conduct that may occur at polling places in the city.

In a statement, Flynn said all Erie County residents should be able to confidently exercise their fundamental right to vote in a safe and secure polling place.

Early voting continues through Sunday and Election Day is next Tuesday.

Any violence or potentially dangerous conduct should be reported immediately to local law enforcement, and any complaints about voting violations can be reported to the Erie County DA's Office at 716-858-2424.
