As if the U.S. presidential election wasn’t scary enough, ISIS has just made an announcement that is sure to put all Americans on edge.

The terror group has called on its followers to attack voters in the election and has told Muslims not to cast a vote, calling for the ‘slaughter’ of Americans voting in Tuesday’s Presidential election.

It comes after the FBI was reportedly probing a major terror attack thought to be planned by al-Qaeda for the day before the U.S. elections in multiple states.

The new ISIS threats, reported by terrorist monitoring group SITE, said militants ‘have come to slaughter you and smash your ballot boxes’, the Mirror reports.

The terror group also wrote there is no difference between the Republican and Democratic parties in their ‘policies against Islam and Muslims’.

Speaking about the reported al-Qaeda threats, a spokesman told CBS News:

The counterterrorism and homeland security communities remain vigilant and well-postured to defend against attacks here in the United States.

The FBI, working with our federal, state and local counterparts, shares and assesses intelligence on a daily basis and will continue to work closely with law enforcement and intelligence community partners to identify and disrupt any potential threat to public safety.

The U.S. is intensifying its cyber defenses amid fears hackers could target electronic voting systems on polling day, but the potential for violence around the election has loomed in the background of the campaign for months.

Here’s to hoping voting day runs smoothly.
