There has been a lot of BS being flung around in the news and social media about the 2020 Presidental election. Unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud, ballot shredding, ballots not being counted, or ballots being counted numerous times, dead people voting, etc, etc.

As we know, none of these claims of voter fraud have been proven in a court of law. All of Trump's lawsuits have been thrown out of court for lack of evidence. Many of these claims have been investigated and found to be false. Numerous vote audits in several states, as well as numerous recounts, have proven the counts to be accurate.

Many on the right, especially Trump supporters are angry about the changes some states made to the voting process. Changes to protect the voting public from COVID-19 by increasing access to mail-in ballots or changes to voting deadlines. Many are also claiming, without evidence, that mail-in voting is not secure or safe.

To those of you who think this election was stolen, what does a fair and secure election look like? Let's assume that we all want fair and equal access for all registered voters to be able to cast their vote.

Secure elections, right.

As of this moment, armed, Trump flag-bearing rioters have broken into the U.S. Capitol Building. They breached the Senate Chambers and are trying to get into the House Chambers.
President Trump has encouraged this demonstration and should be held accountable for inciting a riot.

What a terrible day for American Democracy.
