Besides billboards in Ohio and Wisconsin threatening enormous fines and prison sentences for "voter fraud," Harris-Perry noted the appearance of a Spanish-language billboard spotted in Pennsylvania telling voters, "Si Quieres Votar Muéstrala," or, "If you want to vote, show it," a reference to the state voter identification law that was largely struck down in court earlier this month.


Harris-Perry also brought up a "vote by phone" scam reported in Virginia, where senior voters reported getting calls by people offering to "take their vote" over the phone, which would negate them physically going to the polls.
