This is a special edition of The Law. We discussed the 10th Circuit opinion Baca v. Colorado (2019) back in episode 48 of The Law. Micheal Baca (yes, he spells his first name Micheal, not Michael) is the plaintiff in that case, and he graciously agreed to talk to me about how he became a Presidential Elector, why he did not vote for Hillary Clinton as state law required, and what happened when he refused to rubber stamp a ballot with only one name on it.
The 10th Circuit ruled in his favor, but, in a similar case out of Washington, that state’s Supreme Court ruled reached an opposing conclusion. The U.S. Supreme Court has been asked to resolve the issue before the November, 2020 election. If they do not, chaos could, possibly, ensue in the 2020 election.
The case itself: Baca v. Colorado Dept of State (10th Cir. 2019)
