Lower courts have come to opposite conclusions on whether or not states can bind their Electoral College voters to rubber stamp the popular vote or if electors can use their discretion and vote how they want. If this question is not decided by the U.S. Supreme Court by November 2020, our next Presidential election could result in a disputed Presidency…like we are Venezuela or something.
This is the third in a series of three podcasts on the uncertainties surrounding the Electoral College. It features a discussion of the 1952 case, Ray v. Blair, the last time the Supreme Court weighed in on the subject of the Electoral College.
The case itself: Ray v Blair, 343 U.S. 214 (1952)
