The head of the North Carolina Board of Elections reminded voters on Thursday that double voting is illegal, a day after the president of the United States suggested citizens in the state try to do it as a means of testing their elections system.

"It is illegal to vote twice in an election," Karen Brinson Bell said in a statement, explaining that double voting is a felony.

Her comments came after the president suggested during a trip to Wilmington, North Carolina, on Wednesday that people should try to test the system there by voting by mail in the upcoming presidential election and then trying to vote in person on Election Day to make sure it's counted — although it is illegal to vote twice.
