Today’s Action: Protect the Results

With record-breaking voter turnout across the country, combined with a pandemic which forced millions of Americans (who believe science) to vote by mail in order to stay safe, it could be days, up to a week, before we know the final results of this election…and longer if we need to fight off GOP voter suppression in the courts.

Trump sees the writing on the wall, and after falsely claiming victory last night, we know he will try to steal the election in the court.

What’s vital now is that we allow election officials time to count every ballot, and combat Trump’s misinformation and voter suppression machines at every step. The more we can keep the narrative on track with truth and reality about the legal and practical logistics of counting ballots, the less likely Trump will be able to steal this election.

Sign up to Protect the Results – be ready to rally and take to the streets as Trump declares himself an illegitimate winner. RSVP for several events, if possible, in case your nearest option gets cancelled – or, plan an informal rally in your neighborhood.

We know you’ve been longing for a sense of closure and relief after Election Day. But we’ve known for quite some time that this year we’re facing an Election Week. The war between democracy and fascism has at least a few more battles, and we need your strength to soldier on until we’ve secured the victory.

So keep breathing, and plan to keep resisting. Next stop: protecting the results the American people have voted for. Prepare your protest sign.

Find the nearest Protect the Results event near you, and sign up to receive the emergency signal to protest against Trump’s despotic, false claim of victory. RSVP for several events, in case one gets cancelled, or plan to initiate an impromptu protest in your neighborhood.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling the courts that all ballots sent by Election Day must be counted, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
