Roberto García told us: “Of course I am alive and of course I voted for Biden!”

Donald Trump supporters have claimed that thousands of votes were cast in the US elections using the names of people who had died.

“She may be 72 years old,” Maria Arredondo of Michigan told us when we called her. “But I’m alive and well. My mind works fine and I’m healthy.”

Arredondo said he had voted for Joe Biden and he was surprised to hear that his name had appeared on a list of supposedly dead voters in the state of Michigan.

We also talked to other people in situations similar to Maria’s and found similar stories.
