Donald Trump is encouraging his Colorado supporters to vote in person instead of relying on Colorado's vote-by-mail system.
Volunteer Skip Carlson tells Trump before the rally that the vote count in the district will indeed be honest. "And do you think those ballots are properly counted?" "And you can go out and make sure it gets in", Trump said.
"In some places they probably do that four or five times". Once a voting official has received a ballot, a voter can not change their vote, according to the Colorado Secretary of State's office. We don't do that.
Trump's claims that the election is rigged has already given rise to one incident of voter fraud on his own behalf, as an Iowa woman attempted to vote twice for Trump because she believed her first vote would be counted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to The Washington Post. Trump campaign officials in Colorado did not immediately respond to a request for comment. "People will come into our country. people that you'll love, and people that love you", but they would come in legally, he pledged.Greeley is in Weld County, one of 11 Colorado counties that considered secession from the state in a 2013 referendum, partly out of frustration with an increasingly leftist state government.Weld County voted against secession.
During a rally Saturday in the state, Trump also told his supporters that he has "real problems with ballots being sent" and suggested that the system could enable some people to vote a couple of times.
