At a rally in Greely, Colorado on Sunday, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump expressed skepticism about whether the state will count its mail-in ballots.
According to CNN, Trump said that he is “skeptical” that the state will treat mail-in ballots fairly and count them the same as other ballots.
After asking the crowd how many of them have sent in their ballots, Trump said, “Now do you think those ballots are properly counted?”
The audience erupted in boos.
“You can check on your ballot to make sure it’s counted properly,” he said. “I know they’re all saying, ‘Oh, of course everything is so legitimate, everything is so…perhaps I’m a more skeptical person, okay?”
“So, you can get a ballot if you need it tomorrow, it’s closed today,” Trump said, “but you can get a ballot tomorrow at University Center and you can put your ballot in.”
“You can go to University Center and they’ll give you a ballot, a new ballot. They’ll void your old ballot, give you a new ballot. And you can go out and make sure it gets in. Now, in some places they probably do that four or five times, but we don’t do that. But that’s great. By tomorrow, almost everyone will hopefully have their ballots in.”
These dubious tips come after weeks of Trump complaining that the election is “rigged” and saying that voting fraud is a major concern because his rival Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is going to “open the borders” to allow “illegals” to enter the country and vote Democratically.

Intelligence official directly contradicts Trump administration’s excuses for suppressing whistleblower
A top official in the intelligence community has disputed the factual basis for the Trump administration’s suppression of a whistleblower complaint believed to regard the potential misconduct of the president himself, a new letter released Thursday revealed.
The letter was made public by House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA). He is locked into a fierce and potentially explosive dispute with an array of forces within the administration to obtain the complaint, which was made through proper channels by an intelligence official last month to the community’s inspector general. Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson determined that the complaint was “credible” and “urgent,” and subsequent reporting from the Washington Post found that it concerns a “promise” made by Trump in communication with a foreign leader.
Longtime GOP strategist explains why his party is getting crushed in the war of ideas
Republican strategist Stuart Stevens on Wednesday warned the GOP that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) might not be a pushover candidate against President Donald Trump in 2020.
Writing on Twitter, Stevens admitted that he had "no idea" if Warren would beat Trump next year, but he did say that "Trump and supporters are destroying [the] credibility of any center-right argument" thanks to Trump's "corrupt and unstable" governance.
When one of Stevens' followers said that Warren would not be able to fulfill her promises just by taxing the wealthy, he countered that this idea is still more popular than anything Republicans are championing.
Japan wants to dump Fukushima radioactive water into ocean
Japan's top government spokesman slapped down the environment minister on Tuesday after he said there was "no other option" but to release radioactive water from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean.
"It is not true that we have decided on the disposal method," Chief Cabinet Minister Yoshihide Suga told reporters after Environment Minister Yoshiaki Harada's comments earlier in the day.
The operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), is storing more than one million tonnes of contaminated water in tanks at the site of Fukushima Daiichi Plant that was wrecked by the 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.
