Controversial Donald Trump ally Roger Stone has vowed to check the validity of the presidential election results by setting up what he describes as his own exit-polling operation outside of select precincts around the country on Election Day. Stone calls it "a monumental undertaking" and one that he claims could either validate or call into question the outcome on November 8.
Stone is attempting to recruit at least 3,000 volunteers to fan out to "several thousand" hand-picked voting precincts around the country that he and his team have determined to have the highest risk of faulty results. But Stone is far from that goal with just 12 days until the election, having recruited 1,200 people.

Trump, who is down in most polls, has been hyping the possibility of a "rigged" election on the campaign trail for weeks now, saying that he might not accept the outcome should he lose.
Stone said that with his operation, he is planning to provide the evidence — or lack thereof — of any fishy voting results. He claims that if his exit polls are within a two percent margin of error of the certified results, then his opinion, the election can be trusted.
