Well watching the Texas proceedings is about as interesting as watching grass grow, so i'm just gonna check in here every 5 minutes or so.


The process is quite interesting, if a little dry.


Right now they are replacing electors.

With wins in South Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee and West Virginia, President-elect Donald Trump has won 44 of the 270 votes he needs to formally win the presidency. Hillary Clinton meanwhile has won Vermont's three votes


So Trump is 44-3 up so far...


The electors that have been causing issues and taking it to court are from Colorado, Washington State and California. Those are states Clinton won so their attempt to vote for someone else hurts Clinton and doesnt affect Trump.


I read in various places that these Clinton faithless electors were trying to make a deal with Trump electors.
The deal was if they would vote for a Republican other than Trump, so would the Trump electors.
The goal was so that Trump would not get 270 and it would go to Congress.
I guess we will know soon how well that plan worked.

ETA: I think the end game goal was hoping Congress would choose Clinton re. the popular vote.




Thats not a deal! They should offer what Madonna offered! (until she welched on her offer! Since then, I have lost ALL respect for her)


They should have gotten Sam Smith up there to give the offer if they wanted to reach out to liberal men.


OOOH FABULOUS!

Has there been any other election where the electoral college voting has been of any interest to anyone?

It's all a dog and pony show.

and you are the one who believes everything you hear on the news also so...


It wasn't news. It was the elector himself speaking in an interview.
Death threats to get Republican electors to not vote for Trump. That is what he said.


hey utk, can you please find that "interview" and then figure out his name? if there is no name...it could be anyone, if there is, compare it to the real Mr.....??? If they are not the same person...you have been duped by fake news.

Thats how it works. People admit to doing this for click bait and make up to $10,000/mo.

Do you know why they are replacing some electors?

This is below the video of Texas




In some states, if the electors don't vote for the candidate chosen by their party, they can face a fine. But here in Texas, the electors are not bound to vote for their party's choice -- in this case Donald Trump.


I think absenteeism or tardiness.

Don't believe anyone is folding...there is another reason. Texas electors are not bound to the winner.

oh, so they are supposedly NOT voting for Trump?

Is that the law, they MUST vote for Trump?

What law are they not following?


Depends on the State.
Go and take a look at TheGreenPapers.com.
Good information there.
In Texas, Texas Election Code 192.006 applies.

Each state has their own laws. Some states require the elector to vote as the people of the state voted. If the state requires them to vote as the people voted and they will not, they can be replaced.
