The last day to vote is November 3rd, but we may not know the results of this election in one day. We must push for every vote to count, even though it may take longer than we are used to. Meanwhile:
- Use this social media toolkit to find resources to help yourselves and others manage expectations about counting votes and why it's important.
- Use these talking points to address disinformation.
- Use this guide to talk to Friends and Family Who Share Misinformation.
- Stay connected to local organizing efforts by signing up to receive timely election defense and coup prevention-related info.
- Use and share our election defense resource document.
Until we are all free,
