Trump calls for delay in US elections, cites mail-in voting fraud

Jul 30, 2020 18:40 IST

US President Donald Trump has called for November's presidential election to be postponed, saying postal voting could lead to potential fraud and inaccurate results.
In a series of tweets, Trump said there should be a delay until people can vote 'properly, securely and safely'.
Trump said 'universal mail-in voting' would make November's vote the 'most inaccurate and fraudulent election in history' and an embarrassment to the country. He even suggested that mail-in voting, would be susceptible to foreign interference.
US states want to make postal voting easier due to public health concerns over the coronavirus pandemic. At least 6 US states said earlier this month, that they were planning to hold "all-mail" ballot elections.
Despite Trump crying hoarse against postal ballots, there is no evidence of widespread fraud, according to numerous nationwide and state-level studies over the years.
