“In a college area, it’s probably a college kid that somehow thinks that’s a proper thing to write at this time, but it shouldn’t make people afraid to come out to vote tomorrow,” Evans said. “We have a few people in our department who are very good at reading graffiti and finding out who’s responsible.”
Evans said police will be out in force across the city on Election Day, and people should not be worried about their safety–he said they should go out and vote knowing his officers will protect their Constitutional right to do so.
“We always have officers at the polling places, and they’ll be working with the personnel at the polling places to make sure things are very orderly,” he said. “Obviously, we know it’s heated, and we’ll do our best to keep the peace.”MORE NEWS: Massachusetts Reports 2,107 New COVID Cases, 3 Additional Deaths
