Winners of Elections should only be announced once all ballots are counted and accounted for! Click HERE to read our DEMAND FOR ACCURATE REPORTING ON ELECTIONS *We call on the media to uphold their responsibility to report elections accurately. An election ends, not when the polls close, but only when the last vote is counted. Media should begin NOW to normalize the idea that we will probably have to wait weeks after November 3, 2020 for final results and should lay the foundation that a delayed result is not due to a corrupted process.* Please SHARE our statement on your social media accounts, and if you know of any partner organizations that would like to sign on to our statement, let us know!
