We will need to follow up on our votes by signing The Pledge to Safeguard the Election (https://www.thepledge.site/pledge-to-safeguard-the-election) to make sure our votes COUNT and then dig 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.

In response to the previous comments. It isn’t Gen or Antifa nor “Trump’s supporters” who have “whipped up frenzy” – it is Donald Trump himself who has done this. This is the first time in any of our lifetimes that we are even DISCUSSING these kinds of post-election nightmare scenarios, and the blame doesn’t lay on the American people or the media. If Americans fear that Donald Trump might attempt to assume authoritarian powers, it is because he has repeatedly given us very good reason to do so.

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.
