    Count Every Vote

    November 4, 2020 -- Due to increased voter turnout and a higher-than-normal number of mail-in (absentee) ballots, the results of the presidential election are still ‘too close to call.’ The counting of votes continues today in numerous states, and some states may require a few days for a complete count.

    To be clear: A thorough and complete count of every vote is absolutely fundamental to the continuation of our democracy. Elections are not over until all ballots are counted. In every election, results have always been certified well after Election Day. If this election does eventually become contested by either political party, the Sikh Coalition, alongside civil rights and interfaith partner organizations, will work to ensure the integrity of the final results and to protect our basic right to vote.

    As the Sikh American community knows all too well, times of national tension can have profoundly negative and dangerous consequences for racial, ethnic, and religious minorities and other marginalized groups. For this reason, the Sikh Coalition continues to urge vigilance and caution for every Sikh in the United States.

    If you or someone you know experiences hate violence, bias-based property damage, hate vandalism, or threats thereof, immediately seek safety and medical attention if necessary. Call law enforcement as soon as possible to report the incident. Be aware that law enforcement should not ask you about your immigration status; in the event that they do, you have the right to not answer this question. Please contact the Sikh Coalition at 212-655-3095 or fill out our reporting form immediately after the incident. Additionally, you can download our free FAQ guide on hate crimes and hate speech.

    We will continue to share information and weigh in on the evolving election results in the days ahead. In the meantime, we encourage you to consult trusted media sources as our nation watches the results unfold together.

    As always, the Sikh Coalition urges you to practice your faith fearlessly.
