Sign the petition: Amy Coney Barrett must recuse herself from any 2020 election cases!

President Trump and Congress gave Justice Amy Coney Barrett a seat on the highest court in the country while votes in Trump's re-election race were being cast. Trump made it clear that he wanted her there as a tie-breaking vote, in case election issues made it to the Supreme Court. And soon, Justice Barrett could start ruling on 2020 election cases.

This is an enormous conflict of interest that's addressed by federal law: judges are required to recuse themselves from a case if their “impartiality might reasonably be questioned.”

Sign the petition now to prevent this outrage.

Barrett’s hasty confirmation was hurried precisely because Trump wants her to cast a vote if a dispute about the presidential election makes it to the Supreme Court. Trump has suggested time and again that he will contest the election if Biden wins.

During her confirmation process, Justice Barrett refused to commit to recusal. And with crucial election-related litigation likely to reach the Supreme Court very soon -- we must immediately ramp up the pressure and make sure she does what’s right for democracy.

Sign the petition: Justice Barrett cannot rule on 2020 election cases.
