It’s a felony under North Carolina state law to vote twice.— Jonathan Lemire (@JonLemire) September 3, 2020
Once someone has cast an absentee ballot, that person may not change or cancel it, or decide to vote in person on Election Day https://t.co/D06RbMzzzB
For getting his supporters ballots disqualified. Those old enough to remember need to recall the "Brooks Brothers Riot" was centered on one location in one state. Does Trump think he can replicate that situation in several states? Or at all?
My theory: Trump knows he's going to lose in a fair fight. So he tells his supporters to vote twice, knowing some of them are dumb enough to try. When they get arrested, he'll claim that Trump voters are being targeted, deep state, rigged, etc. but Ds are getting away w "fraud"— Asha Rangappa (@AshaRangappa_) September 3, 2020
Yeah, probably. The question is, what will the courts do about it? And how many states will it take to "reverse" the outcome? The courts may declare some votes were invalid, but they are more inclined to convict individuals of the crime of fraud. The outcome of the Presidential election will rest on federal law and Constitutional deadlines and requirements, and unless Trump can coordinate lawsuits in enough states at once to affect the electoral college count, he loses.
Because this time, it's not going to come down to one state.
Trump doesn’t plan on letting this election proceed fairly, so please identify trusted voices you can listen to to help identify & understand suppression & election fraud. Elections are run at the state & local level. We can have fair ones if we remain well informed & vigilant. https://t.co/O5cPjAhQOj— Joyce Alene (@JoyceWhiteVance) September 3, 2020
Best advice of all: it's not a federal election, it's a state and local election (federalism, 10th Amendment, etc.) The statement from North Carolina's Board of Elections doesn't indicate any willingness to support Trump's shenanigans. Most local election bodies are not interested in anything but a fair outcome. Voter suppression is pernicious, but we can fight back against it, rather than fear the future and what Trump might do to it. Trump may scream "Foul!," but he has to have evidence to back it up. So far the closest he's come is Barr's "logic." Even Barr isn't dumb enough to go to court on that.
