I voted for Clinton in my primary. Does my vote count?

I requested an absentee ballot, filled it out as soon as it arrived, and mailed it back. I marked the box for Hillary Clinton.

Does my vote count? Is my vote irrelevant because it's not at a caucus? Was my vote fraudulent?

Help me out here, folks. What do I need to do to make sure my vote isn't in danger of being thrown out in the name of fighting voter suppression?

3. well, if you marked it for Hillary that means you registered as a Democrat. I may be going out on a

limb here, but I think you're fine

"What do I need to do to make sure my vote isn't in danger of being thrown out in the name of fighting voter suppression?"



The ultimate, long term answer to your question is "vote for Bernie Sanders".

5. Who knows if any vote counts?

Do you have reason to believe your vote was tampered with?

7. No

All Clinton votes should be shredded. Only Sanders votes count.

11. You will have to check the voter rolls

after the election to make sure your ballot was received.

17. I know you mean it as a joke or snark

 

But back in the real world some folks. (In the tens of thousands in AZ for example) are getting disenfranchised. More than a few probably intended to vote for HRC. And if your ballot got lost in the mail. Shit does happen...

18. Sign The WH.gov Petition To Demand A Re-Vote

If you are uncertain (and you probably should be), sign the WH.gov petition to demand a re-vote:
