Whether they're running for city council or for president, candidates ask you to stand for them: with your volunteer hours, your dollars, and your vote. But when it really counts, do candidates stand for voters? When elections are suspicious, sometimes only candidates on the ballot have the standing to initiate legal challenges. Voters must be able to count on candidates to take this bold action where necessary, yet in the past candidates have repeatedly let us down. StandingForVoters.org, a new project of VelvetRevolution.us, calls on all candidates to pledge to challenge elections when necessary and educates them about issues of election integrity.
StandingForVoters asks you to call on candidates to sign the pledge. The website suggests a variety of ways to get your requests to candidates. You can ask only one candidate or many. No volunteer signup is required.
