Donald Trump Is Now Encouraging Outright Voter Fraud
You know how Republicans are always fear-mongering about voter fraud, even though there’s almost no evidence of it actually happening in the real world?
Well, today the Republican Party’s increasingly desperate candidate for president of the United States is actually encouraging his followers to commit voter fraud.
During a rally in Greeley, Colorado, on Sunday evening, Trump opened the event expressing skepticism of mail-in ballots in the state. He encouraged people to get a new ballot, even if they have already sent one in, and vote again.
“Who has sent their ballots in? And do you think those ballots are properly counted?” Trump asked the audience, to which they replied “No!”
Trump continued by expressing his skepticism and telling supporters to go get new ballots to ensure their vote is counted.
“If you go to university center, they’ll give you a new ballot, they’ll void your old ballot, in some places they do that four or five times, so by tomorrow, almost everyone will have their new ballots in.”

So anybody doing what Trump suggests here will be committing both perjury and felony vote fraud. @CNNPolitics
Trump obviously knows that what he’s encouraging is highly illegal, so he may be trying to deliberately set up a legal reason to question the results of the election when he loses.
