There's no easy way to say it. Our elections face unprecedented threats. From voter suppression and efforts to undermine the legitimacy of mail-in ballots to possibly refusing to accept the results. Democracy has always meant more than elections, but this time we face threats to the integrity of voting and counting votes. Come learn how about these threats to our democratic rights and a range of ways to defend democracy, from poll watching to protest.
