President Donald Trump called for an investigation into alleged voter fraud, including whether citizens are registered to vote in more than one state, but least one member of his family, one of his senior aides, and a Cabinet nominee have been found to be registered in at least two states.
“I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time),” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedure.”

Although it is not illegal to be registered to vote in multiple places – unlike voting twice in the same election, which is against the law – proponents of theories of voter fraud point to multiple registrations as proof that illegal voting takes place.
