— -- Donald Trump’s running mate Mike Pence doesn’t think voter fraud will sway the outcome of the election -- despite the GOP presidential nominee warning of a "rigged" system.

“I don’t think that’s the case, honestly,” he said, when asked on Fox if he believes voter fraud will be consequential on Election Day.

His comments on Wednesday night mark a departure from his running mate, who has repeatedly said that the election is rigged.

Still, Pence insisted “voter fraud is real,” pointing to several cases of fraud in his home state of Indiana. On the stump, Pence has repeatedly encouraged voters to volunteer at polling places on Election Day.

“If you’re here at a rally and you’ve not yet volunteered to participate in the electoral process by respectfully ensuring the integrity of the vote come Election Day then you haven’t done yet all you can do,” he said on Tuesday at a rally in North Carolina.
