But if the people with the foreclosure lists tell people they cannot vote, they might not vote. Even if they still live in their homes. Even if it's been less than 30 days since they moved. How likely are they to know the law?
To a certain extent, people will believe what they are told, even if just by a challenger and not a poll worker. How do they know the difference? It's hard to push your way through conflict and vote anyway, which I expect is something the Republican election chairman is counting on.

Two election challengers are permitted per party per precinct.Threatening or intimidating electors
is illegal and if you observe this in the polling place, I would inform the pollworkers if they are not aware of it and/or call the police. Challengers are to challenge electors only in the manner specified in the law. I would agree with you that going up to an elector unsolicited and telling them they are not allowed to vote and/or telling them to leave would be illegal.
