I agree you are going to need to do more than just vote this time. Sign The Pledge to Safeguard the Election (https://www.thepledge.site/pledge-to-safeguard-the-election) to make sure our votes COUNT and then dig deep into the grit of the electoral process to make sure that electoral officials follow the same rules that have been applied to previous modern elections. If mail-in ballots are challenged, the results are closer than expected and President Trump then begins to manipulate the electoral college or attempts to move the process to the House, we will indeed have a constitutional crisis.

We need to cast our votes on the House and local levels with this in mind and then follow through AFTER the election to make sure the normal process is followed by keeping pressure on electoral officials of all kinds at all levels. A fuller explanation can be found in the article “Stop the Coming Election Crisis” (https://medium.com/illumination-curated/sign-the-pledge-to-safeguard-the-election-b4daae7efd93) and “Wake Up America! What if Trump Loses the Election and Really DOES Refuse to Go Peacefully?” (https://medium.com/illumination-curated/a-call-to-safeguard-the-election-3a81c9192071?source=friends_link&sk=364c7b349fff6447f2573c6370449846).

I appreciate the heartfullness and optimism in your article. But we need to wake up NOW during this election (which might extend until January under the worst-case scenarios) if we are going to prevent an electoral college disaster and a repeat of 2016. I urge readers to do more than just clap for this article or my comment on it. Sign the Pledge to Safeguard the Election, urge others to do the same, and then start looking into how you and those others can influence electoral officials to be faithful to your vote and the popular will of the people within their respective states. Keep working, this election will doesn’t end on November 3, and your work doesn’t end with your vote.
