In recent days, many experts in computer science have raised serious concerns about the integrity of the announced vote counts in the 2016 presidential election.
While RootsAction supports the calls for audits of the vote totals in three key swing states with thin Trump-Clinton margins -- Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania -- we note with concern that the governors of two of those states are highly partisan Republicans who would use all their power to impede such audits.
This is not just a state matter. Any action to change a vote count would be a federal crime -- and the success of any such effort would be a monumental crime against democracy. We need immediate action at the federal level.

To: Attorney General Loretta Lynch
Accurate counting of votes in a presidential election is not just a state concern -- it is a federal matter that goes to the heart of election integrity and democracy in the United States. We urge you to immediately launch an emergency investigation into the vote counts in the 2016 presidential election in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania -- and to take appropriate action based on the findings. The citizens of our country have a right to know that the election results are accurate.
