Every American deserves to make their voice heard at the polls – and the misinformation President Donald Trump is spreading about illegal voting serves to undermine that right. That's why Federal Election Commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub has sent a letter to President Trump (click here for full text) reiterating the need for the president to produce evidence to back up his outlandish claims that millions voted illegally in the 2016 election.
Add your name to become a co-signer of Commissioner Weintraub's letter, and demand that President Trump produce his evidence.
President Trump has asserted, without evidence, that 3-5 million people voted illegally in 2016. He and members of his administration followed that up with the even more specific allegation that thousands of people had been bused in from Massachusetts to vote illegally in New Hampshire, which was a presidential battleground state.
New Hampshire officials – including Republicans – have called the allegation ridiculous, and people in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts are outraged. The letter from Commissioner Weintraub demands that President Trump share any evidence he has that this coordinated unlawful voting occurred.
The President of the United States should not traffic in conspiracy theories or push baseless accusations. Trump's allegations could undermine voters' faith in the fairness of our elections or nudge overzealous lawmakers toward creating more unnecessary voting restrictions that could disenfranchise eligible voters.
If President Trump has no evidence to support his unlawful voting claims, he needs to put them to rest. If he does in fact have evidence, particularly regarding his specific allegations about New Hampshire, he needs to share that evidence without delay.
If you agree, add your name as a co-signer of Commissioner Weintraub's letter now. You will help show widespread public support for this issue.
