Today’s Action: Stop Trump from stealing electors

Although our country has a popular vote, the popular vote does not decide the Presidential Election – the electoral college does. And who votes in the electoral college? Electors, chosen through a variety of methods depending on the state.

Trump is allegedly considering yet another way to steal the election, which would be to urge GOP-led legislators in battleground states to disregard the popular vote and simply select electors who will vote for Trump.

Even without this possible scheme, in a global pandemic when in-person voting is potentially life-threatening, one thing abundantly is clear: our states must commit to counting every absentee ballot so that we truly know the will of the people.

Call or email your state legislators and Governor and demand a) mail-in ballots are fully counted and b) presidential electors are selected according to the popular vote.

Trump is examining every loophole in the law on his quest to win this election. And by undermining the validity of the election with false claims about absentee voting fraud, he’s trying to build a case for certain Trump-friendly states to ignore voters entirely.

States MUST commit to counting all ballots postmarked by November 3rd, and then allowing voter rule to guide elector choice.

Email or call your state legislators and Governor and tell them to commit to counting every ballot postmarked by November 3rd, and then ensure presidential electors are selected by the will of the people…not the will of Trump.
