    Sign the petition: Count every vote!

    Petition to election officials in Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, and Wisconsin:
    We expect you to resist Donald Trump's efforts to undermine the election and our democracy and instead count every vote.

    Several crucial states remain too close to call, with thousands of ballots left to count -- and Donald Trump wants to stop them from being counted.

    We need to make it extremely clear to those who oversee elections in these states that they must count every vote. Can you send that message to them right now?

    Trump and his fellow Republicans were already trying to prevent votes from being counted before the election. They lost in states like Texas and Nevada. But Trump is going to try again, as he's already making absurd and reckless claims that show once again he does not respect our democracy.

    Voter suppression is already a huge problem in this country. Since the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in 2013, Republicans have gotten away with more and more blatant acts making it harder for people, especially people of color, to vote.1

    But what Trump is attempting is even worse. He wants to stop the counting now in order to claim a victory he has not actually won. He would rather deny people their right to vote and have their ballots counted than accept defeat. We cannot let him or anyone else block eligible votes from being counted.

    Public pressure can go a long way toward making sure every vote is counted. Can you step up now and tell elected officials to resist efforts to stop the count?

    Add your name: Count all the votes!
