U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday encouraged those who cast votes by mail to cast two ballots in November’s election, one by mail and another in person as a check to see if the mailed vote was counted.
“So send it in early and then go and vote. And if it’s not tabulated, you vote. And the vote is going to count. You can’t let them take your vote away. These people are playing dirty politics. Dirty politics,” Trump said in an interview at the Wilmington airport.
Trump won North Carolina by 3.6 percentage points in 2016, but polls are showing an extremely close race taking shape in a state that generates 15 electoral votes for its winner.
