I’m surprised that Donald Trump’s team hasn’t suggested that his voters go to the Electoral College meetings in each state on Monday. If the election is stolen from Trump, then at least there would be some angry people there to witness history and raise a fuss.
I think it’s therefore a good idea for all interested citizens to attend their state’s Electoral College meeting on Monday, December 19. Even aside from the modicum of drama, it will make for a good civics lesson! Such meetings are open to the public and all take place at state capitol buildings or like facilities.
If there is any “drama” to be had, it will occur in states with Republican electors. And the notion of a “swing state” ceases to apply here, so what happens at the Austin, TX statehouse will be just as consequential as what happens at the Tallahassee, FL statehouse. In order for the proposed Electoral College coup to succeed, Republican electors need to be persuaded. We already know that at least one GOP elector, Mr. Suprun of Texas (who has retained a PR firm to handle all his media inquiries) has declared he won’t vote for Trump. Will there be more? Maybe. Who knows?
In states where Hillary won, the outcome is already foreordained, so not quite as interesting, but even that would be worth observing if you’re in the area. (Although, maybe one or two Bernie diehards will refuse to vote Hillary? It’s possible.)
