    First and foremost, if the worst were to happen, don't parrot the media, don't just ignore doubts and concerns, and don't start bashing America - that's self-defeating.  Also, don't whine or act helpless.  

    Communicate with the campaign, express doubts and concerns (if any), and if you're really not sold on the legitimacy of a negative result, ask that the candidate hold off from conceding until a closer look can be taken at the results.

    Beyond that I have no idea - that's the point.  We would have to think our way forward from there, and you can't do that if you're in a state of shock.  People become either docile and obedient to whatever they're told by the media, or they become emotional wrecks incapable of understanding their situation let alone changing it.  I'm saying "stay focused, and stay together."  That sounds over-general, but think about how rarely we've met that standard under those circumstances.

    Voter suppression is treason.

      If there is good reason to believe that the election is stolen, there needs to be a general strike while election challenges work their way through the courts.  

      "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!
