Talking about elections on social media these days tends to bring a lot of bad-faith arguments out of the woodwork. Here are a couple of tips to help navigate that dangerous sector of space.

If at any time, you need support in managing an interaction that has gotten out of hand, please reach out to Tae directly at ensignphoenix@trekthe.vote.

The Trouble with... Trolls
General Language

Do:

Say, "election security," "election transparency" and "voting rights."

Don't:

Say, "election integrity," or "voter fraud."

Why?

Conspiracy theorists have hijacked the term "election integrity," so we've moved into using terms that are very straightforward and value neutral, and therefore harder to twist.

"Voter fraud" is vanishingly rare, but impossible to disprove for people who are intent upon believing in it. Keep steering the conversation back to things that are measurable and based in reality.


"Stop the Steal"

Do:

Say, "there is no factual basis on which to dispute the outcome of the 2020 Presidential election. We will work with anyone who is operating in good faith based on that commonly accepted truth."

Don't:

Engage with election deniers at all. Even if they say that by rejecting the big lie, we are being partisan.

Why?

Trek the Vote is a non-partisan movement. We will work with everyone from any point on the political spectrum as long as they are operating in good faith. "Stop the steal," is not a good faith conversation and it is not worth giving oxygen to.
