Donald Trump is in power in large part because Democrats have repeatedly conceded elections they really won. On Tuesday, that MUST change.
Anyone deemed a close loser MUST fight. Every tally must be contested, every denial challenged, all missing ballots found, every provisional honored.
What could bury our democracy? Stripped voter rolls, erased precincts, lies about where to vote, voting stations moved out of town, intimidated voters, impossible-to-get ID, street addresses required on reservations, lies about eligibility, unsent absentee ballots, suppressed registrations, hacked electronic machines, hidden source codes, trashed provisionals.
It's all been happening since at least 2000. Highly qualified teams of election protection specialists all over the country (www.freepress.org and many more; the state and national Democratic parties have hotlines) are ready to fight.
Nobody "officially" losing by less than 10 percent, or while winning the exit polls, should walk away.
Tell your candidates: DO NOT CONCEDE!!
Anyone working on this election MUST contact your candidate and DEMAND an "I will not concede pledge" BEFORE Tuesday.
