Trump recklessly set off alarms at every level of democracy. We know he never hesitates to trample on the Constitution and believes he is above the law. In North Carolina, he foolishly urged his supporters to vote by mail, and then go vote again on election day in person! That’s illegal!! That’s voter fraud!!! So much for law and order!
Trump is criminalizing democracy. It’s not just illegal to vote twice, it’s a felony to even try!
The executive director of the NC State Board of Elections said that attempting to vote twice is a Class I felony fraud, and “soliciting someone to do so is also a violation of North Carolina law.”
It’s totally irresponsible for a president to encourage his supporters to attempt something illegal, just to get himself re-elected. Everyone watching this election knows that Trump is trailing in 9 out of 10 polls, even in battleground states, but is he really that desperate?
All Americans should ignore whatever Trump says about voting; whether it’s about voting by mail, absentee, early, drive through, in person, or trying to vote more than once.
Ignore whatever Trump says about the pandemic too. The COVID-19 virus is killing someone every 80 seconds and over 1,000 persons per day. He’s not a doctor, though he plays one on TV.
Every American who is eligible, should vote in this election. But, vote only once! Neither candidate that you may support is worth going to jail for.
