We see now the reality that we can’t take even the tiniest part of our democracy for granted. Every single vote must count — and every single one of us must vote. And as a country, we should be making it easier, not harder to cast a ballot.

@MichelleObama Actually send me a truckload of them, for my buddies too, dead and alive. And make sure you count Every. Single. One. Of them.

@MichelleObama I missed it this time, but for the next election can you guys send me a ballot too? I'm pretty close by, in Toronto Canada. If I really need to I can come pick it up and vote in person in Buffalo. Every vote counts!

@IsItTimeForA @MichelleObama ALL the votes were legal--just not repressed/suppressed, and your side lost. Get over it.

@MichelleObama Every single LEGAL vote must be counted.
Which is why they are requiring an audit now, or Pennsylvania is NOT GOING TO BE CERTIFYING THEIR ELECTORAL VOTES.

My warmest congratulations again to Joe and Jill, Kamala and Doug—and each of you who stepped up when your country needed you.

We’ve got to promise each other that our focus in this election won’t be an anomaly, but the rule. That’s how we can not only feel this way right now, but in the months and years ahead. It’s the only way we’ll build a nation worthy of our children.

So it’s up to us to stay engaged and informed, to keep speaking out and marching on. We’ve got to vote in even greater numbers in the upcoming Senate runoffs in Georgia—and every state and local election going forward.

Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division. We’ve got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us.

And after we celebrate — and we should all take a moment to exhale after everything we’ve been through — let’s remember that this is just a beginning. It’s a first step. Voting in one election isn’t a magic wand, and neither is winning one.

But we’ve also got to recognize that the path to progress will always be uphill. We’ll always have to scrape and crawl up toward that mountaintop. And two years from now, four years from now, there will once again be no margin for error.

Thank you to all of you who poured every ounce of your hope and determination into this democracy over these past four years, registering voters, getting them to the polls, keeping folks informed. More votes were cast in this election than ever before. It’s because of you.

I’m beyond thrilled that my friend @JoeBiden and our first Black and Indian-American woman Vice President, @KamalaHarris, are headed to restore some dignity, competence, and heart at the White House. Our country sorely needs it.
