Nevada's top prosecutor is promising to file charges against anyone who tries to intimidate voters on election day.

Attorney General Aaron Ford says President Trump's advice to supporters to monitor polling places encourages voter intimidation.

Nevada republicans, including former Attorney General Adam Laxalt, say Ford is discouraging legal poll watching.

Ford's office says it plans to rely on state election officials to monitor for possible voter intimidation.
