WHO: All U.S. citizens but especially those in NC, FL, MI, PA, WI.

WHAT: Request a bipartisan audit of the vote in the 2016 presidential election.

WHERE: Call and write from home.

WHEN: NOW. If the vote is to be audited, it must happen by December 13. Time is short.

WHY: An audit is a reasonable and common-sense request. Some Trump supporters argue an audit will show even bigger wins for Trump; we invite that possibility. There are a number of factors that justify an audit:


  1. Sign the Audit the Vote petition, organized by the non-partisan organization, Verified Voting.
  2. Share the Verified Voting petition on your social media accounts. Raise awareness.
  3. Make phone calls:
    Say, “My name is ____. I am a U.S. citizen and a voter. I request an audit of the 2016 presidential election. Thank you.”
    Department of Justice:

  4. Email the Department of Justice with your concerns: voting.section@usdoj.gov. Here is a sample email template. (Many thanks to the author.)
  5. Contact your representatives, especially if you live in one of the states listed above. Request that they demand an audit of the vote. Here’s how you find your elected officials.
