DALLAS—Bria Jackson says she is a registered Democrat and knows her mail-in ballot was sent somewhere she no longer lives; it would have been easy for the current resident to vote in her name instead of notifying her, and fraud this election was possible.
Jackson joined others at a Stop the Steal rally in Dallas, Texas, on Nov. 14, 2020, as similar rallies were held across the country.
“This was not a fair election. If Donald Trump lost fair and square nobody would be out here,” Jackson said. Between statistic anomalies reported in swing states, reports of ballots cast by dead people, and other fraud allegations, Jackson has no confidence in this election.
“There needs to be an audit of all the votes, we need to make sure there’s no dead people voting … no mail-in voting,” Jackson said. “My mail in vote didn’t even go to me, it went to somewhere I lived 10 years ago.”
The protesters led a short march as well, but not everyone seemed happy with it. “All we were saying was ‘USA’, how could you boo USA?” Jackson said of her interaction with onlookers.
Thousands of people participated in grassroots rallies in state capitals across the country on Nov. 7, 2020, and again a week later on Nov. 14 across the country with more traveling to Washington to demonstrate.
The organizers of the Stop the Steal March on Washington, which includes advocates from various groups, are counting over 52 rallies, many of which occurred independently of their organizing. They have since called on the public to rally every Saturday until results are certified on Dec. 14.
