It's a big hurdle to get a look at the paper ballots in PA. It's almost impossible. And the PA 2% "audits" of the ballots are not adequate to detect fraud. Despite the almost insurmountable obstacles, at least there is some avenue to get a recount in PA. In New York, there is no avenue to get a statewide hand-count of the paper ballots.

If a recount happens in PA, think about traveling over there to help monitor the recount.

PLEASE REPOST: Volunteers are needed ASAP for the recounts in WI, MI and PA. LOTS of volunteers. To sign up, follow the links below.
In Michigan, go to

Thank you for your interest in supporting the 2016 Pennsylvania recount.

Recounts play an important role in supporting the integrity of our elections.

In addition to the costs of a recount, we also need to find at least three voters in each election district willing to submit an affidavit to their county board of elections requesting a recount. We will be working with our legal team to develop the affidavit language to send to those willing to do so.

Please tick that option below, if you are able to do so.

Recounts also need volunteers to monitor the recount process itself.

We will need volunteers to observe the recount in every county in Pennsylvania. Let us know below if you are interested in helping and receiving more information on how you can do so.

Please check your own county, and any other county that you would be willing to drive to (likely for a 9am start time).

Often, we need volunteers who can go to more remote areas outside of urban centers.

Our recount team will follow up with you soon via email as further details become available.
