"Get out and vote in these critically important elections. Democracy is literally on the ballot."

See below for a scary thread by Sen. Mark Warner.  The key points:

  • Sen. Warner is “concerned that 2022 could serve as a dry run for further harassment of election officials, obstructive legal strategies, and eventually a larger effort to subvert the 2024 election.”
  • “117 election deniers have a 95%+ chance of winning. Once in power, they’ll have control over voting & certification practices in many jurisdictions nationwide.”
  • “Since 2020, we’ve seen a wave of threats, harassment, and intimidation towards election administrators – and it’s been incredibly effective.”
  • “I’m confident that honest officials will administer a fair contest. But these kind of tactics by election deniers could cause disruptions on Election Day, and even cause some counties to try to refuse to certify the vote.”
  • “With more election deniers in power in 2022, and hundreds more near-guaranteed to be elected in time for 2024, we could see a coordinated effort – from grassroots county officials to senators – refusing to certify valid results, casting doubt, or obstructing the transfer of power.”
  • “So with midterms approaching, I want to affirm my trust in the validity of our voting system and the reliability of the results. Get out and vote in these critically important elections. Democracy is literally on the ballot.”
  • “I’ll be monitoring harassment of election officials and voters, obstruction of valid results, bogus legal challenges, and the election of anti-democracy candidates. These midterms have the potential to be a staging ground for outright election subversion down the line.”

We are in deep, deep trouble. Vote as if your democracy depends on it – because it does!
