So as a result of this ruling, states cannot pass laws directing the votes of electoral college electors. This will effectively void numerous laws recently passed in Democrat led states that allocate all electoral votes from their state to whoever the national winner of the popular vote is.

Just so everyone knows, state parties select the electors for their candidate and if their candidate wins, so do their hand-picked electors.

Federal court undercuts progressive efforts to nullify Electoral College, rules electors can vote freely

In a major blow to state-by-state progressive efforts to effectively replace the Electoral College with a nationwide popular vote, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that presidential electors in the Electoral College have the absolute right to vote for presidential candidates of their choice. Democrats have increasingly sought to erase the Electoral College's influence by promoting state laws that would force electors to vote for the national popular vote winner -- and those laws were now in jeopardy as a result of the court's ruling, legal experts said.

The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals held that the Colorado secretary of state violated the Constitution in 2016 when he removed an elector and nullified his vote because the elector refused to cast his ballot for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who won the popular vote both nationally and in Colorado.


The Electoral College system is established in the Constitution. When voters cast a ballot for president, they are actually choosing members of the Electoral College, called electors, who are pledged to that presidential candidate. The electors then choose the president. Electors are selected by state parties at nominating conventions, and generally consist of party leaders, activists, and other luminaries.
The US Constitution is a sublimely beautiful and magnificent document. What a great ruling. The US Constitution wins again.

And the Democrats are thankfully blocked in their effort to improperly interfere and try to rig our presidential election process.

America wins again! The founding fathers were wise, unlike democrats who would prefer to do away with the constitution in favor of mob rule. Democrats want mob rule because their mob (which includes an invading army of millions of illegals) is larger than our mob. Democrats are dangerous, and refuse to play fair. They are always looking for a way to cheat the system. If they can't get away with breaking the rules, than they will work to eliminate the rules that cause them such a high degree of butt hurt.

God forbid that voters actually get to vote directly for the candidate of their choice. The electoral college plus gerrymandering are the only way that republican candidates can win elections these days.

Ya, democrats never do this


Either way, most of us know by now that illegals vote, and illegals flock to democrat urban dumps where the people would fully support illegals participating in our elections. Anything for a win for the manic, frothing at the mouth dems who burn our American flag, call it racist, and a whole lot of other nonsensical garbage that makes up their daily diet of hatred and self victimization.

Can the Dems just try to change the laws on how electors are chosen then?

What is the law that regulates this process now? Do you happen to know?

Whatever laws are passed need to be consistent with the US Constitution.
