Voter fraud is not a widespread problem in the United States, but by the time Donald Trump is through with us, it might be. The GOP nominee spent the weekend campaigning in Colorado, and rather than focusing on those who have yet to cast their ballots, he tried to convince his supporters that their mail-in ballots will not be counted. Colorado is one of three states where ballots are mailed to all registered voters. People can either send back their ballot, or vote in person. … Many interpreted that as a call to cast two ballots for Trump, but he’s saying only one of those two votes should be counted. The mail-in vote will be voided so that the Colorado voter can submit a single, reliable in-person vote for Donald J. Trump. That sounds reasonable, but that’s not how voting works in Colorado. The Colorado secretary of state’s office told Fox 31 Denver that people cannot change their votes. They can choose to vote in person rather than submitting their mail-in ballot, but once a clerk has received their ballot it cannot be changed.
A recent CBS 4 Denver investigation uncovered a dozen incidents in which Coloradans attempted to vote twice in previous elections, and Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams said they are cracking down on such cases. “There are individuals who break the law and they should, and are, being prosecuted for that,” Williams said.
Last week in Iowa a Trump supporter was arrested and charged with voter fraud after casting two ballots.
