1 month ago   |   By My Sanantonio

In 2016, both sides had about 1.3 million signed up before...

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.'

President Trump explicitly encouraged Florida voters to cast their ballots by mail this November in a Tuesday tweet.
The tweet, which described Florida's mail voting system as "safe and secure, tried and true," is a major departure from Trump's months of claiming that mass-scale mail voting is highly fraudulent.
