Chief U.S. District Judge Wiley Y. Daniel has denied a request to nullify a Colorado law requiring presidential electors to vote for the winner of the state’s popular vote. To do otherwise, Daniel said it would undermine the electoral process.
The president-elect intervened to defend the integrity of the electoral process. Your vote should count when you vote for president said an attorney representing Trump.
Democratic electors who pledged to support Democrat Hillary Clinton who was the winner of Colorado’s nine electoral votes claimed the law was unconstitutional. Polly Paca and Robert Nemanich wanted to trade their votes for a third-party candidate and keep Trump from receiving 306 electoral votes. Clinton got 232.
The “Hamilton Electors” movement is trying to convince Republican electors supporting Trump to defect and force the question to the U.S. House of Representatives.
