Two Florida election clerks were fired Tuesday and police were called to the scene after a dispute over alleged voter intimidation.
The Pompano Beach clerks were not named. One was a Democrat and the other a Republican, NBC Miami reported.
Election officials told Local 10 the clerks were fired because they didn’t adhere to “procedure and policy.”
The incident began when the election workers could not agree over where volunteers could stand, WSVN reported. At some point, police were called to the Herb Skolnick Community Center; however, no arrests were made.
Dr. Brenda Snipes, the supervisor of elections, fired both workers and ordered them to leave the polling stations, NBC Miami reported.
Other poll workers stepped in as replacements.
Pompano Beach is a city in Broward County.
