Trump says paper ballots, same day voting and voter ID would “straighten out” elections

In a new interview with Breitbart News, former President Trump suggested paper ballots, same day voting and voter ID would “straighten out” elections.

“Voter ID is very important,” Trump told Breitbart. “Frankly, going to paper ballots is better than anything you can do — paper ballots. Going to paper ballots. You know, Canada uses paper ballots. I think going to paper ballots would be the best thing if you want to have accurate elections. Countries that do paper ballots — solidly watched paper ballots — those are the ones that work. And stop the mail-in ballots unless it’s for military and overseas or very sick people, people that just can’t vote — and they have to have some kind of a real excuse. I think paper ballots, same-day voting would be great. Those things, you’d straighten out your elections.”

Trump said mail in ballots must be stopped except for “military and overseas or very sick people.”

Canadian election officials made that clear in a public statement last year they do use paper ballots.
