A man in Fort Bend, Texas was arrested Tuesday for trying to vote twice, Click2Houston reported. The 62-year old man, Phillip Cook, had already voted early last week, but returned to his polling site again Tuesday, officials said. When the poll workers saw his name on the voter rolls as having voted already, he said he was trying to vote to “test the system,” according to the report.

The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s office confirmed the arrest on Twitter, where they said the man claimed to work for Donald Trump.
