Trump Says People Should Vote Twice

Once in person, once by mail, to test the system. Un-belucking-fievable.

3. I helped get a trump supporter arrested for trying to vote twice back in 2016

I was in the voter protection war room and an election judge called me and asked if trying to vote twice was against the law. A trump supporter insisted that he had the right to vote twice. We had a room full of lawyers and fed the election judge with the provision of the Texas Election Code that made it a crime to vote twice. This idiot was arrested and this arrest made the Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/12/01/0-000002-percent-of-all-the-ballots-cast-in-the-2016-election-were-fraudulent/

A man in Texas who voted twice. Phillip Cook was arrested on Election Day after voting twice. He claimed to be an employee of Trump's campaign who was testing the security of the electoral system. He wasn't an employee of the campaign and the polling location's security worked perfectly well, it seems.

5. Every tRump voter should try this!

When they are caught their ballots will be invalidated for this election, and they will probably lose their right to vote for the rest of their lives.

Sounds like a win/win to me!

Yeah, let's see just how efficient the various fraud detection and prevention mechanisms are - especially in (currently) red states!

8. Cant do that ( At least in NJ) - Here's why

 

Once you register for a Mail in Ballot - you cant vote in person - except provisionally.

If for some reason - say you did not receive a ballot or forgot to mail it in - you can vote provisionally. The ballot goes inside a sealed envelope that goes inside a second envelope with your name/address etc - That goes into a different pile.

Provisional Ballots are not counted by Default ( Absentee /Mail in ballots are). If the margin of victory is greater than the number of provisional ballots - then those votes have go through the 'process' - check if the person was registered to vote - has not already cast a Mail in ballot ..

you get the idea.

The election system is not stupid. Over the couple hundred years - politicians would have tried every crooked idea.

12. Be prepared.

I kind of expect some Dump supporters, U.S./Russian/other, to try flooding USPS with carbon copied ballots if only to give Dump an excuse to say "I told you so! It's rigged! I won!" and drag it out like he does the courts and everything else. I don't know what all USPS and/or precincts can do to be ready for this and other dirty tricks but I hope they're prepared for the worst.
