Local Houston station KPRC2 identified the man as 62-year-old Phillip Cook of Richmond, Texas. “Officials said poll workers noticed that Cook appeared to have already voted, and thought that it may have been a mistake in the roll. However, when poll workers confronted him about the problem, he admitted that he was trying to vote twice to ‘test the system,'” they report.
