President Trump Suggests Voter Fraud to Test Election System
President Trump made an interesting suggestion to voters about the upcoming election when speaking with reporters in North Carolina on Wednesday.
To test if the voting system is “as good as they say it is,” the President suggested North Carolinians vote twice, once by mail and again by in-person voting. This suggestion comes after weeks of the President attempting to discredit the mail-in process, saying that election results would not be accurate due to voter fraud. However, what he suggested voters in NC to do is just that, voter fraud. Intentionally voting twice in one election is illegal and a felony. The Attorney General of North Carolina, Josh Stein, took to Twitter to warn the state not to vote twice.
Today, President Trump outrageously encouraged NCians to break the law in order to help him sow chaos in our election. Make sure you vote, but do NOT vote twice! I will do everything in my power to make sure the will of the people is upheld in November.

“BARR on fraud in the vote-by-mail process: “Elections that have been held with mail have found substantial fraud and coercion.”
THE FACTS: Multiple studies have debunked the notion of pervasive voter fraud in general and in the vote-by-mail process”https://t.co/kY3Td70Xe1

NC has a system to make sure that if you vote by mail then vote in person (whether early voting or Election Day) your vote WILL NOT BE COUNTED twice. I know because I drafted that process for the #ncga in 1974. If you vote twice or induce someone else to it is a felony. #ncpol
