Our director @Smith_JeffreyT  in the @TheIndypendent : “The violence being perpetrated against those in #Tanzania  who are not card-carrying members of the ruling party is unsurprising. Magufuli is ... bulldozing any semblance of democracy." @NeimanSophia 

"President Trump may be a minor player in the larger story of a democracy grappling with demands for a more equal society — an era marked by the election of Mr. Obama, the first Black president," writes @NPRinskeep 

China sanctions four with US democracy promotion ties over Hong Kong

Democracy, according to Stacey Abrams is defined as “the opportunity to have direct engagement in the values and policies that govern and guide communities.” Simply put: The right to vote is central to American democracy.

Five factors that helped US democracy resist Trump's election onslaught

MORNING BRIEFS | THAILAND CRISIS, GERMAN CONNECTION As anti-monarchy sentiment increasingly dominates pro-democracy protests in Thailand, the king's unexplained preference for living in Germany is testing Berlin's longstanding hands-off approach.

#HyderabadHallaBol | ‘Expanding your base & fighting rightfully in democracy is something which should be seen as merit and not demerit’, says @sambitswaraj , National Spokesperson, BJP. | @thenewshour  with Navika Kumar

Come on, Congress! You can do it! (Remember... democracy is about compromise. No one gets exactly what they want).

When America sees everything we are uncovering they will be disgusted and even the media won’t be able to pretend voter fraud isn’t real. Ending this crap once and for all will be fundamental to preserving our republic and faith in democracy.

Protecting one man's ego is not worth damaging the legitimacy of our democracy.

I want to speak directly to the Black women in our country. Thank you. You are too often overlooked, and yet are asked time and again to step up and be the backbone of our democracy. We could not have done this without you.

Joe Biden will win the popular vote by over 4 million votes. The Democratic nominee for president has now won the popular vote in 7 out of the last 8 elections. One person, one vote. Democracy must rule. Yes. We should abolish the electoral college.

In 2016, when Trump won PA, MI, and WI by a handful of votes, the election system worked just great. Now that he's losing, it's a "fraud" and they're "stealing the election." This is how demagogues destroy faith in democracy and move us toward authoritarianism. Count every vote!

Let's be clear. This election won't be over when Trump says it's over. It will be over after every vote is counted. That includes mail-in ballots postmarked on Election Day, as well as military ballots. This is a democracy. Whether Trump likes it or not, we count every vote.

Trump isn't running against @JoeBiden . He's running against our democracy. Recognize this threat. Call it what it is. Turn out in overwhelming numbers. Let's stop him, together.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg fought to the end, through her cancer, with unwavering faith in our democracy and its ideals. That’s how we remember her. But she also left instructions for how she wanted her legacy to be honored. My statement:

So much news today, but don't overlook the voting debacle happening right now in Georgia. This is a dire wakeup call for November - long lines, broken machines. It is a national outrage that undermines the legitimacy of our democracy.

This is an egregious attack on our democracy. The end of #NetNeutrality  protections means that the internet will be for sale to the highest bidder. When our democratic institutions are already in peril, we must do everything we can to stop this decision from taking effect.
