Trump Skeptical of Colorado’s Mail-In Ballots.
Donald Trump created a little controversy when he made over-generalizations regarding the process voters use to redo their votes on mail-in ballots.
The Hill reports:
Donald Trump expressed skepticism of Colorado’s mail-in ballot process in the state at a rally Sunday evening.
Trump told his supporters they should get a new ballot if they hadn’t sent theirs in yet.
“Who has sent their ballots in? And do you think those ballots are properly counted?” Trump asked.
“No,” the crowd replied.
“If you go to university center, they’ll give you a ballot, a new ballot. They’ll void your old ballot, they will give you a new ballot. And you can go out and make sure it gets in,” Trump continued. “Registered voters in Colorado automatically receive a ballot in the mail, but can request a new ballot or vote in person if they have not yet mailed in a completed ballot.”
“In some places they do that four or five times. But we don’t do that. But that’s great.”
A Republican woman in Iowa was arrested Thursday for allegedly voting twice for Trump in the general election.
Trump has repeatedly warned his supporters about the election being “rigged” and has questioned counting and processing systems.
