In a democracy, the voters decide who will represent us. We have held successful elections through the 1918 pandemic, the Great Depression, and two World Wars. We can do it now.
The successful and peaceful transfer of power depends on level-headed leadership prevailing over partisan fighting. This is a time for accuracy and honesty. Not politics.
Here’s what our elected officials must do next:
- Ensure every vote counts
- Offer transparency — clearly communicate the vote counting plan, and stick to it
- Follow the laws related to handling ballot discrepancies
Our leaders are elected to do the work of the people. And now, we’re counting on them to do their jobs. Our democracy depends on it.
