With less than 100 days to go, the nation's top election administration official says in an exclusive interview he's concerned about absent poll workers, long lines, federal funding and low voter registration numbers

President Donald Trump claimed there were 'millions' of illegal ballots cast in 2016, and he predicts the 2020 vote will be 'substantially fraudulent' and 'the greatest election disaster in history.'
