Donald Trump is  asking volunteers to fill out a form on his website to pledge to act as “observers” for what he believe will be a “rigged” election.

Earlier Friday, Trump repeatedly told a crowd gathered at a Pennsylvania rally that he would only lose the state to Clinton if “cheating goes on.” He also called on his supporters to “go down to certain areas” and “make sure other people don’t come in and vote five times.”


The Trump campaign webpage calling for “observers” appears to be the first and most significant move toward formally organizing the candidate’s supporters around an idea — cheating and rigged elections — that has becoming an increasingly prominent part of his stump speech. However, it was not clear what the campaign would have the volunteers to do beyond making donations.
