BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - As the divided nation waits for a winner to be declared, tension and anxiety are intensifying with Trump supporters following the President's lead in believing the election is being stolen.

People who spoke to Action News are absolutely adamant that there is wide-spread fraud, while others scoff at the president's claims of fraud.

"There is no voter fraud," said Linen Cannon, a voter who believes there is no voter fraud.

"Yeah I did, I did vote. Yeah, I would accept the results of the election," said Scott Tibbet, a voter who will accept the results of the election.

"It looks like it's going the right way so yes?" said Cannon.

One person who wished to remain anonymous believes there still is voter fraud somewhere in this election.

"I do think there is voter fraud. Do I have any proof? No, but I think in every election there is," said the anonymous person. "I think that it's in the voting by mail, is where the fraud is mostly."

"So when it comes to mail-in ballots or anything, where do you see the fraud in that, in the mail-in ballots," we asked.

"Well because anybody can fill it out," they said.

"Even though it's crossed referenced and stuff I mean they check the signature make sure it's okay," we said in response. "Does that not sway you in the way that there is no voter fraud?"

"No, I think there's voter fraud in every election, it's foolish to think there's not any fraud going on," said the anonymous person.

"But there's no evidence of it, so where is the voter fraud? If there is none then why think that there is voter fraud?" Action News said in response.

"Disproving something is a lot tougher than proving it. We haven't seen any proof or evidence of voter fraud and so that's sort of where it stands until there's proof of it or any evidence, but there isn't any," said Keaton Denlay, Butte County Election Division Manager.

"I kind of wish they would just hurry up, but I'm going to accept it, I don't think there's a lot of voter fraud going on," said Tibbet.

"The first 100,000 come out real first, but the last two to four-thousand are going to take some more time," said Denlay. "So we're hoping to get those results by Thanksgiving."

So far there has been no evidence whatsoever of voter fraud or evidence of interference with this election.

Denlay stresses that not just in Butte County but across the nation, patience is what ballot counters need.

Butte County said the voter turnout for this election is the most votes received in any election ever at over 100,000 votes.
