COULD THE 2020 ELECTION BE STOLEN?
What if Trump loses in 2020 and refuses to leave office?
What could we do about it?
How can I make sure that my vote
- and your vote- will be counted?
Did Trump’s 2016 presidential victory express the will of the electorate? Or was it based on the same tactics of rampant vote suppression and computerized vote-counting fraud—that have “elected” losing candidates since 2000, including Bush/Cheney and a multitude of other rightist politicians now controlling the Senate and statehouses from coast to coast.
These urgent questions have been drowned out by the furor over “Russia-gate”—the story that it was Russia that rigged the 2016 presidential race. We need to focus on the overwhelming evidence that our elections have been stolen time and time again by operatives right here at home. Such criminal activity will certainly destroy American democracy -- unless we face it squarely, talk about it openly, and push for radical reform of our abysmal voting system, the worst in the developed world.
The cause has taken on special urgency and complexity because 2020 is not an "ordinary" election. The impact of COVID and social distancing poses difficult challenges to both vote casting and vote counting. In this "pandemic election," voter suppression becomes an even greater menace, as Trump and the GOP strive to block the expansion of mail-in voting and throw every possible obstacle in the path of the voters whose votes would bring about their defeat. And there are ominous signs that the president will not accept an electoral defeat but will throw the country into post-election chaos to keep his grip on power.
This minefield is the subject of this online panel, which includes three prominent election reform advocates. We will discuss what individual voters must do to protect their own right to vote and avoid falling victim to the suppression schemes. We will also look at what we can still do collectively to bolster the security and integrity of the election. And how to prepare to respond to several post-election scenarios that may well put our democracy to a very serious and dangerous test. Please join us in gaming it all out so we don't just repeat the disasters of the past.
