USA Today Op-Ed: Why the Recount Matters
Our electoral system is under threat.
There is nothing more important to our American way of life than our democracy. The lifeblood of this nation is the principle that each citizen’s vote is equal when it comes to choosing our president.
But in the age of computerized voting machines and unprecedented corporate influence in our elections, our electoral system is under increasing threat. How can every citizen’s voice be heard if we do not know if every citizen’s vote is counted correctly?
Greens Demand Recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania
The Stein/Baraka Green Party Campaign is launching an effort to ensure the integrity of our elections. We are raising money to demand recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania-- three states where the data suggests a significant need to verify machine-counted vote totals. Please donate to this initiative today.
To give you a sense of the problem, some voting machines used in Wisconsin were banned in California after they were shown to be highly vulnerable to hacking and malicious programming due to lacking security features.
"After a divisive and painful presidential race, in which foreign agents hacked into party databases, private email servers, and voter databases in certain states, many Americans are wondering if our election results are reliable. That's why the unexpected results of the election and reported anomalies need to be investigated before the 2016 presidential election is certified. We deserve elections we can trust." -- Dr. Jill Stein.
This is about more than the results of this one election. This is about protecting our democracy and ensuring that "We the People" can have confidence in reported results.
We need your help to make sure your votes were counted accurately on Election Day. Please donate now to help maintain integrity in our elections. Please donate to this effort to protect our democracy.
This effort to ensure election integrity is in your hands! In order to make this happen, we need to raise over $2 million by this Friday, 4pm central. In true grassroots fashion, we're turning to you, the people, and not big-money corporate donors to make this happen.
Volunteer to Help with #Recount2016
In each state--Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan--we will need hundreds of volunteers to serve as election observers for the recount process. If you live in or near one of these states, please sign up to help in this effort to uphold election integrity. You will be asked to enter your contact information and to check what counties to which you would be willing to travel (often, volunteers are especially needed to travel to more rural counties).
