Several hundred protesters returned Tuesday afternoon to downtown Graham, in Alamance County for an Election Day "peaceful push to the polls" march. The demonstrators engaged in a largely "silent" march, and were encouraged to stay on sidewalks and not engage with law enforcement. 
On Saturday, sheriff's deputies and police pepper-sprayed marchers in the same location.
