LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The FBI is making sure your vote is protected.

Little Rock’s supervisory special agent Ryan Kennedy said several agencies are working together, ensurig a fair election.

Elections crime coordinators are dedicated to collecting information on crimes like voter suppression or intimidation.

The data can then be given to the appropriate agency to be taken care of.

“If they see something on social media, see if they can find it somewhere else. Find it through local news sources or national news sources,” Kennedy said. “We really just need to get in the habit of educating ourselves.”

If you fall victim or witness any election crimes, the FBI encourages you to contact them at (501) 221-9100.
