US Supreme Court takes up presidential Electoral College dispute

As the 2020 race heats up, the Supreme Court agreed on Friday to hear a dispute involving the complex United States presidential election system focusing on whether Electoral College electors are free to break their pledges to back the candidate who wins their state's popular vote, an act that could upend an election.

The Supreme Court will take up appeals in two cases - from Washington state and Colorado - involving electors who decided to vote in the Electoral College process for someone other than Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 even though she won the popular vote in their states.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These cases are why you have not heard any more about completely eliminating the Electoral College completely, and could, potentially, turn the 2020 election on its ear, depending upon whom the Democrats decide that their candidate will be for this election.
