(Philadelphia)_Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams says he's found no evidence of vote fraud or intimidation as his office responds to a few dozen complaints from voters.

Williams says no major problems have emerged among the 68 complaints his office investigated during the first half of Election Day.

Williams says the volume of complaints is on par with the last three presidential elections.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has raised concerns during the campaign about potential voter fraud in Philadelphia.

Meanwhile, officials in Allegheny and Schuylkill counties say reports that machines are switching votes have been investigated and proven unfounded.
