CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A candidate for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives says there have been instances of voter intimidation taking place.

Fifth Congressional District Democratic candidate Josh Throneburg says it has been taking place since early voting got underway.

In a statement, he says intimidation tactics by Republican poll observers have been reported in several localities over the last two weeks in violation of Virginia’s election laws.

Throneburg cites an incident that reportedly occurred in Fluvanna County, when a Republican election observer stopped voters inside the county’s early voting location to ask for their personal information.

Under state law, election observers are prohibited from interfering with or impeding voters who are on their way to vote.

Throneburg is also expressing concern over multiple incidents of inaccurate voting information being sent out by state officials.

One example was Albemarle County where registered voters received a state notification containing the wrong address for the early voting location.

In Charlottesville, voters received a notice with a P.O. Box instead of the physical address of the city’s early voting location.

Throneburg’s campaign says it is concerned about potential voter confusion since this is the first election to take place since redistricting, which changed official polling precincts for some voters.

The campaign says these incidents have been reported to the Virginia Department of Elections.
