This document is meant to help you take some precaution and map how you plan on acting, engaging, or abstaining from action in November. Remember: each of us has a different risk model, meaning that we each know best what we can or can’t handle, have capacity for, or expertise on. Your safety plan should serve you and people you care about. Not having some of the items of this list does not reflect a lack of preparation — you can best assess. A recommended way to use this list is to make a copy, share with friends, and check the things you feel/have, and then make a plan to get anything missing.
