GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The North Carolina NAACP says it has received more than 600 phone calls about voter intimidation across North Carolina including some instances in the Piedmont.

The organization held a rally at the courthouse in downtown Greensboro Monday. The group claims North Carolina had the worse cases of voter intimidation.

The NAACP said it sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper requesting security at polling locations and a report detailing all events of voter intimidation during early voting and on Election Day.

“When you pull something like this up a trailer hanging nooses... That's a form of voter intimidation,” said NC NAACP President Rev. William Barber. “I never thought in 2012 we would see what we are seeing now.”
