Faithless Electors Be Gone!

Can state electors cast their votes for whomever they chose in a presidential election? We witnessed several electors do just that in 2016, in an effort to deny Donald Trump his hard won victory by throwing the presidential election into the House of Representatives. On Monday, the US Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that states can punish electors who abandon their duties and try to game the system. This ruling supports our Electoral College system, and arrives just in time to discourage “faithless” electors in the 2020 presidential election.
