Post Election Day

 

Many people (a record 2.7 million requested mail-in ballots in Michigan) are voting by mail this year due to COVID-19. This means that election day will be different than normal. 

  • Absentee ballots will not be counted until on and after election day.

  • The results of this election will take longer than normal to be finalized. Some officials have said that results might not be finalized until at least Friday of election week.

  • Uncertainty and misinformation surrounding mail-in voting and the counting process is likely to cause confusion and unrest. 

  • There will likely be attempts to delegitimize the results of the election based on criticizing votes counted after the election. 

It is very important that we, as citizens, demand that every vote be counted.  No one’s valid, lawful vote should be thrown out. 

What can you do to help? 

  1. SIGN UP to get more information or to learn about “Count Every Vote” rallies on the days following the election. These rallies will take place outside clerk’s offices and at polling places.

  2. GET TRAINED! Attend trainings on rally leadership, conflict de-escalation, and how to be an event marshal. Put your name on our mailing list for these trainings here

  3. Recruit others in your community to demand that every vote be counted before election results are finalized.

  4. Follow and share information from our social media pages to see more information about where and when rallies are located.

  5. Be prepared and knowledgeable about your rights as a voter and protester.
