Sign the Pledge

At the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787, Ben Franklin was asked by passersby about what kind of political system we would have and he reportedly replied: “A Republic, if you can keep it.”
We pledge to keep it.

We Americans have been blessed with a reliable, free and fair electoral system to ensure that the voice of the people is  heard.The hard work of officials and volunteers at the state, county and precinct levels has ensured that our electoral system works.

We cherish their work and the civic traditions that make our country the beacon of democracy around the world — a reputation we must strive to preserve against all threats.

Therefore, we rededicate ourselves to uphold the following basic principles, and we call on our fellow citizens to do the same:

Let every eligible voter vote.
Let every vote be counted.
Let the electoral count stand.
Respect the voice of the people in each state as expressed in the popular vote.

Sign your name if you agree.
