Trump’s Voter Fraud Claims

Kendall Coffey was quoted in the Miami Herald January 25, 2017 in regards to Trump’s Voter Fraud claims.

Kendall Coffey, a Democrat and election law expert in Florida, said voters commonly don’t take the time to cancel a voter registration when they move and re-register in a new location. That’s common for college students, for example.

“It is not a crime to be registered in two states as long as, at the time of each registration, the voter’s residency was claimed truthfully,” said Coffey, a former U.S. attorney in Miami. “Residency is principally a matter of the voter’s intent as long as there is some accompanying physical movement to the new location. If one intends the new location to be his or her residence, and has a residence in the new jurisdiction to which movement has been made, courts will usually find that to be sufficient.” – Kendall Coffey
