Election officials across Arkansas are completing last-minute training for poll workers in preparation for next week's general election. And this election cycle presents possible challenges, including potential vigilante poll watchers concerned about a "rigged election."

Jacqueline Froelich with Fayetteville station KUAF sat in on a poll worker training seminar there and talked with a local county election coordinator about the rules of "poll watching" and polling place security.
