As I write this, our country does not officially have a president-elect. The media has declared a winner, but that is not how it works in the United States of America. According to Article 2 of our Constitution, each state must certify their vote and not a single state has yet done that.

I voted to re-elect President Donald Trump as did over 72 million other Americans. We need to know that this election was conducted legitimately. Surely, we can take the time necessary to let the process play out.

Vice-President Biden urges us to unite, but that will be impossible without the verification that this election was free and fair. No matter the winner in 2020, we need to ensure for all of the American people that the election was legitimate. That is important for this election and for all that follow.
