The Trump administration is trying to put the “popular vote” myth to bed once and for all. In order to do that, they need everyone who voted for the president to go to their local city or town hall or other municipal authority and sign an affidavit stating that you did, in fact, vote legally for Donald trump and the date you voted if you voted early or by mail.
In return for your time, everyone who fills out and signs the affidavit will be compensated for their time and travels by the federal government at the rate of $500. The cost of the campaign will be charged to the DNC, who filed for a national recount in federal court this morning.
Clinton supporters will be able to fill out affidavits as well but they won’t receive any compensation. Once again, it sucks to be them.
The recount will commence on Monday, March 20th. No appointment is necessary. All you need to do is bring 2 forms of ID and a long form of your birth certificate to your local election bureau and they’ll cut you a check when your affidavit is complete and verified that you voted trump.
