GOP nominee Donald Trump is actively recruiting supporters in order to form an army of ‘Election Observers’ to monitor polls on Election Day and ensure that voter fraud is prevented and exposed.A section has been added to Trump’s campaign website describing how supporters can get more information and sign up to be a “volunteer Trump Election Observer.”
“Help Me Stop Crooked Hillary From Rigging This Election!” the page reads.
“I hope you people can sort of not just vote on the 8th — go around and look and watch other polling places and make sure that it’s 100 percent fine,” he said at a rally in Pennsylvania earlier this month, adding that the only way he can lose to Hillary Clinton in stronghold states is if there is ‘cheating’.
Trump has warned supporters several times that the election could be ‘rigged’, prompting the media and the Clinton campaign to label him a ‘pathetic, dangerous, reflexive conspiracy theorist’
Trump echoed a warning issued by Infowars’ Alex Jones who detailed that only landslides are capable of defeating dirty tricks such as black box voter fraud. Trump warned supporters that the election could be rigged against him, just as it was against Bernie Sanders.
Trump has specifically pointed to the fact that in the past fortnight, five courts in five states have ruled against voter ID and proof-of-citizenship laws. Trump said he is worried that the decisions will lead to widespread voter fraud.
“The whole thing with voter ID, identification I mean, people are going to walk in — they’re going to vote 10 times, maybe — who knows?” Donald told Bill O’Reilly.
Watchdog group True the Vote shares Trump’s concerns.
Spokesman Logan Churchwell has warned “Donald is right to say, ‘Look, things are changing, lawsuits are being resolved’ — because they are.”
“And as a result of that, his underlying message is, ‘If you’re worried about this like I am, then I need your help working at the polls.’” Churchwell adds.
Democrats and some within the Clinton campaign have dismissed voter ID laws as anti-democratic.
Civil rights groups such as the ACLU are also against voter ID laws. Witold J. Walczak, legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania has attacked Trump on the issue, saying that “Questioning the integrity of an election is extremely dangerous.”
