Citizen Against A Stolen Election started this petition to To Be Sent to All Our Legitimately Elected Officials

We are facing an unprecedented situation in our country: uncertainty about whether the president of the United States will attempt to maintain his office by circumventing voting results—most likely by questioning the legitimacy of votes in close battleground states. Although extreme efforts such as using military or paramilitary force are possible, if President Trump refuses to accept voting results, he and his allies will most likely make such claims using legal means such as influencing his party to intervene at a state level and/or trying to force legal and judiciary review in courts favorable to him. If he succeeds in such efforts, he will have undermined the bedrock foundation of our democracy and thus made our federal government illegitimate.

            To maintain state and local legitimacy, it is important that you as a truly elected official (regardless of party affiliation) commit to:

- Vigorously objecting to any effort to turn legitimate voting results into illegal or illegitimate ones—before it happens.

- If efforts to “steal the vote” initially succeed in any state, making extraordinary and unrelenting efforts to reverse this illegitimacy before transacting any other government business.

- If efforts to “steal the vote” initially succeed, to recognize the rights of citizens to participate in nonviolent protests and nonviolent civil disobedience and vigorously defending citizens’ rights to such protests.

- Strongly suppressing armed citizen militias that are seeking to harm or intimidate nonviolent protests.
