I have been advocating that people click and sign The Pledge to Safeguard the Election [https://sign.moveon.org/petitions/pledge-to-safeguard-the-election] to make politicians abide by the results of the Electoral College.

It will take more than just a signature on a petition to be effective – but this petition can be a first step around which we can coalesce in order to fight for democracy on legal and political grounds.
