That's not unusual. Barack Obama recruited "Election Observers" across the nation in his two campaign victories, and other Democratic and Republican candidates built robust election-watching networks. But it was this snippet that included Georgia's top elections official that had Georgia Democrats sounding an alarm.
"We don't want anyone getting unruly," he said.
That is what worries Democrats and some election analysts. They say Trump's talk of the "rigged" system has almost promised that poll-watching volunteers will see fraud. During Nevada's GOP caucuses — run by the state party and thus lacking some of the controls of general elections — some Trump supporters showed up for election monitoring duty wearing campaign gear, panicking rival campaigns.
In Georgia, such behavior could pose a problem. Supporters of either candidate can't simply show up to a voting precinct and declare themselves an observer. State law requires each political party to name their observers in advance, and limits it to two poll watchers per precinct. There is no formal training regulated by state law, either, although both parties train their own watchers.
