Trump cabinet nominee Steven Mnuchin is also registered to vote in two states

(CNN)Donald Trump’s nominee to head the Treasury department, Steven Mnuchin, is registered to vote in two states, a CNN KFile review of paperwork obtained through open records requests in New York and California show.

While it is illegal to cast ballots in multiple states, it is not illegal to be registered in two states at the same time. In a tweet Wednesday, the president called for an investigation into voter fraud, including whether citizens are registered to vote in two states.
“I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedure,” the president wrote in a pair of consecutive tweets.

Mnuchin’s New York state voter registration lists a Park Avenue home he previously occupied and still owns as active. Records show he last voted at that address in 2008.
Mnuchin’s voter registration is also listed as active at his Bel Air home in the state of California. Records obtained through an open records request show he last voted at that address in the state’s Republican primary this year.
A Los Angeles county election official had told CNN’s KFile that registration records have yet to be updated to show voting records for November’s general election.
A spokesperson for Mnunchin did not return a comment request.
