Meet The Election Deniers Running For Office: Exploiting Democracy to Create a Dictatorship

"These politicians denied democracy on Jan. 6. Now, they want your vote... Here is a collection of American politicians engaged in using democracy to attain the power to subvert it." - Steve Brodner in Washington Post

This map shows 126 Election Deniers running for Congress and 8 running for the Senate in 2024. I used ArcGIS Online to create this map with data from the Washington Post and VOX. They didn't accept the results of the last Presidential election. Will they accept their own election results? Or stage more bloody insurrections so they can cling to power? Maybe you should ask the election denier running to represent you, if they will honor the elections, if they lose? Meet the election deniers with this map.

Politicians exploiting democracy to get the power to create a dictatorship

"While the violent mob swarmed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, aiming to subvert democracy and keep Trump in power, another group was already working on the same project inside. In an unsuccessful bid to prevent Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election, 147 Republicans formally supported objection to counting Joe Biden’s electoral votes.

Some have already left office. But as many as 117 of these members of Congress are running for reelection in 2024... A collection of American politicians engaged in using democracy to attain the power to subvert it." - Washington Post

Election Deniers Playbook

Election denial poses an ongoing threat to U.S. democracy. Despite its widespread rejection in the 2022 midterms, efforts to undermine electoral systems have proliferated and expanded beyond Donald Trump’s charge that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

This analysis examines the role that election denial played during the midterms and makes an early assessment of how it will continue to evolve ahead of the 2024 election. It does so by outlining 14 tactics deployed by election deniers throughout the 2022 election cycle:

(1) election deniers’ bids for office, (2) election deniers’ refusal to concede, (3) counties’ refusal to certify election results, (4) efforts to discredit voting machines, (5) efforts to tamper with sensitive voting data and equipment, (6) massive public records requests, (7) efforts to recruit election deniers to serve as poll watchers and workers, (8) threats against election officials and workers, (9) voter intimidation, (10) mass challenges, (11) election police forces, (12) anti-voter lawsuits, (13) anti-voter legislation, and (14) disinformation. - Brennan Center

TakeAway: Don't waste your vote on an election denier who's shown they are not going to respect the will of the voters. Vote for Democrats.
