We need to protect the right to vote

Add your name if you're ready to fight to protect the right to vote:

I've never seen a sore winner before.

But even though he won the Electoral College, Donald Trump has spent a lot of time obsessing over one number: 2.9 million. That's roughly how many votes Hillary Clinton received over her opponent on Election Day.

He even sent his spokesman out to complain: "It's unbelievably frustrating when you are continually told it is not big enough, not good enough."


As President-elect, Trump was so humiliated by his poor showing in the popular vote that he tried to justify the gap with unfounded accusations that between 3 and 5 million people had "illegally" voted. Now that he's in the Oval Office, he's using his time with Congressional leaders to discuss his conspiracy theories and his social media platform to spread this lie. And deep down, he knows it's a lie -- even his own legal team insisted November's results were "not tainted by fraud or mistake" only a month ago.

The President is free to have his own opinions, even if he's wrong, but a taxpayer-funded "investigation" of a nonexistent voter fraud problem with the ultimate goal of restricting access to the ballot box is outrageous and betrays our values. Our constitutional right to vote is too sacred, too central to who we are as Americans to let anyone -- especially a tyrant with a bruised ego -- strip it away from even one of us.

This is a direct assault on democracy. And if we don't stand up to protect voting rights, Trump and his Republican allies are going to do everything they can to eat away at our liberties.

Add your name if you're committed to helping Democrats stop them:
