No, Trump - Even ATTEMPTING to Vote Twice - Both By Mail and In Person - Is Illegal

While in North Carolina, Trump encouraged voters to vote both by mail and in person to "test" it. 

"Let them send it in and let them go vote, and if the system is as good as they say it is, then obviously they won't be able to vote," Trump told local station WECT after arriving in Wilmington, North Carolina.

This is, of course, encouraging voter fraud -  and even attempting to vote twice is illegal - according to both federal election law and North Carolina law - and he knows it.

There are varous ways states have made this illegal, as well as the classification of illegality (felony class, misdemeanor class) -  but it IS illegal in all states, according to both federal and all-state law. 

In fact, in states like North Carolina - it is a felony.

And even if you didn't know that, it says so, on every state's official absentee ballot request, like this one from my state of Kentucky ...

... as well as on the received ballot form itself.

Voting twice is punishable by law - so follow Trump's advice and even attempt to vote twice and you risk jail time. 

Ya know, every time Trump accuses somebody else of something - like election rigging/voter fraud -  I now always say to myself:  "Hey, thanks for the heads up - and by that I mean chronically projecting your own behavior onto everybody else, you completely morally-depraved narcissist."
