Donald Trump Says He’s ‘Skeptical’ Of Colorado Mail-In Ballot System

October 31, 2016 6:54 a.m.

For the second day in a row, Donald Trump on Sunday questioned Colorado’s mail-in ballot system, suggesting that votes may not be counted properly in the state.

“Do you think those ballots are properly counted?” Trump asked the crowd at a rally in Greeley, Colorado. “I know they are saying, ‘Oh, of course, it’s all legitimate.’ Perhaps I’m a more skeptical person.”

Trump then told supporters that they can pick up a new ballot in person.

“They’ll give you a ballot, a new ballot. They’ll void your old ballot, they’ll give you a new ballot. And you can go out and make sure it gets in,” Trump said.

He suggested that this could lead to voter fraud but did not appear to recommend that his supporters vote several times.

“In some places they probably do that four or five times. But we don’t do that. But that’s great,” he said.

Trump also expressed skepticism over Colorado’s mail-in ballot system during a rally there on Saturday.

“I have real problems with ballots being sent,” he said. “People say, oh, here’s a ballot, bing. Here’s another ballot, throw it away. Oh, here’s one I like, we’ll keep that one.”
