370 "Count Every Vote" Rallies Planned On Nov. 4 If Trump Contests Results, Prematurely Declares Victory
Bipartisan coalition grows to 135 groups as organizations prepare for massive post-election mobilization.
WASHINGTON - The Protect the Results coalition is coordinating more than 370 “Count Every Vote” events on November 4 should Donald Trump declare victory before millions of ballots are counted or otherwise contest the valid results.
The groundswell of grassroots activity being coordinated by Stand Up America, Indivisible, and more than 135 grassroots organizations—including progressive and conservative advocacy groups, government watchdogs, and labor unions—comes after both Trump and Pence continually refuse to say whether they will accept the results of the election.
Here’s what folks are saying about the mobilization:
From CNN: “Two progressive advocacy groups, Stand up America and Indivisible, formed a bipartisan coalition of 100 advocacy groups called Protect the Results that's organizing protests across the country should Trump try to challenge the results. ‘We see these mobilizations as a critical way to counter any misinformation from Trump,’ said Sean Eldridge, the founder of Stand Up America.”
Additional events are being added to the map daily, and a list of current events can be found here.
