The governors of 11 US states posted a joint statement on Twitter, stressing that they are ready to ensure accurate vote count for the upcoming November 3 presidential elections and a peaceful transfer of power if citizens elect a new head of state.
вЂњAny attempt to interfere with the peaceful transfer of power will be regarded as an attack on American democracy. There is no excuse for intimidating voters,вЂќ the authors of the document stressed.
The governors promise to ensure that вЂњall ballots filled in are accurately counted in accordance with state law and that electoral college members are appointed based on voting results.вЂќ
вЂњWe will not allow anyone to deliberately undermine the democratic process by delegitimizing the outcome of the vote or appointing electors against the will of the voters,вЂќ the statement says.
