Change.org Petition Calls On United Nations For “Emergency Electoral Assistance”
Feeling like the 2016 democratic primaries were rigged? Concerned that your vote doesn’t matter unless it’s a vote for Hillary Clinton? A petition on Change.org is hoping to fix all that, by asking the United Nations for “emergency electoral assistance” for the remainder of the 2016 election cycle.
The petition, which has picked up over 20,000 signatures in the four days since it was created, asks for the United Nations to review cases of alleged fraud and to monitor the remainder of the 2016 general election to help prevent potential future fraud.
Petitioner James Carter explains why he feels the United States needs U.N. election monitoring assistance by repeating what many of Bernie Sanders’ supporters have been reporting since the start of the 2016 democratic primary, particularly in States like New York, Arizona, and California, where reports of election fraud have peaked:
“The U.S. State Dept. says that a discrepancy in exit polls of more than 2% indicates fraud, we have had discrepancies outside of that margin in at least 16 of the state primaries all the way up to a discrepancy of 23%. These discrepancies have only happened in one of our political parties and they have all been in favor of one candidate. On top of the exit poll discrepancies there has been reports of ballots cast in the names of deceased citizens, patients of mental hospitals, and elderly people with dementia. There has been reports of registration purging, switching of party affiliations, vote flipping, and massive voter suppression.”
The United Nations rarely participates in elections, typically only providing election monitoring and result certifications in third-world, war-torn countries with large-scale epidemic fraud.
It’s doubtful U.N. officials would take the Change.org petition seriously; if they did, it would mark the first time in the U.N.’s history where election monitoring services were provided in a major industrialized nation. In fact, to date, Haiti and Timor-Leste are the only countries outside of Africa where the United Nations has monitored elections.
But millions of Bernie Sanders’ supporters across the United States feel serious, systemic, unprecedented election fraud has occurred throughout the nation during the 2016 democratic primary, and the vast majority of that fraud has seemingly benefited Hillary Clinton. The American people want answers, and while it’s doubtful the United Nations will offer any sort of direct election monitoring in the United States, the petition does help spread awareness and may inspire people to Google these allegations on their own time.
