I read this post on a Facebook page called Beauty is Inside (it’s a lovely page, full of self-love & feminist posts). Currently, Jill Stein (Green Party) is calling for a recount in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, & Michigan.
She’s not doing it for her own benefit, – there’s no chance she’ll win & little chance anything will change in her favor – but to ensure the results are accurate. Analysts & other experts are also asking for a recount, saying there’s evidence of influence – if not tampering – by foreign nations/citizens. Unfortunately, each state has its own deadline for a recount request. One of the three states’ mention has an audit deadline of this FRIDAY. Also, a vote audit is expensive. Stein will have to raise around $2 million. She’s currently raising money, & looks like she might actually hit her goal, which she promises to spend on election reform (since chances are very good – almost certain – that her application for recount will be denied in all 3 states).
Hillary Clinton, possibly to avoid causing waves with Donald Trump, has declined to demand the audit herself. However, I think the voters deserve to know the correct person is going to the Oval Office in January. Perhaps contacting the Department of Justice (it only takes a second to email them!) will get them moving?
Whether this will change anything, or whether it should change anything, I can’t say. I can say that voters deserve to know the vote count was accurate & that our election system wasn’t messed with.
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO CALL/EMAIL THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE!
“FRIENDS IN THE US – This is a call to action.
We need two minutes of your time, and really it just takes a minute. This is about national sovereignty and is not a partisan issue but rather a potential foreign breach of our voting system.
The Department of Justice is apparently tallying phone calls regarding those who want the 2016 vote audited. There was a difference of just 55,000 Trump votes to Hillary in PA, MI & WI.
They are starting to recognize there really is something off about the election results as they come in. Considering everything that is at stake, a vote audit should be done.
Call the DOJ and tell them you want the votes audited. Even if it’s busy, keep calling. It takes a few times to get through because of all the calls! DOJ’s main number, the specific voting section number is (800) 253-3931 (toll free) or (202) 307-2767 and the email is firstname.lastname@example.org (Please be polite when you contact them).
NOTE: Snopes notes that it is not confirmed that the DOJ is tallying votes. But asking them to do a risk limiting audit is a reasonable request. I’ll let you know if I hear about other actions to take. To research more, Google #auditthevote
Pass this on to anyone you think would be interested. Cutting and pasting is better than hitting share. Thanks.”
