PAST PROJECT: ELECTORS TRUST
The Electors Trust provided free and strictly confidential legal support to any Elector who wished to vote their conscience. It was formed based on the basic premises that we are all Americans equally and that our votes should count equally. But if the Electoral College votes according to “winner-take-all” rules, our votes won’t count equally. Instead, as in the case of the 2016 election, the person who lost the popular can become our President.
We are a movement trying to establish the core principle of any representative democracy: that citizens are equal, and that their votes should count equally.
America is the only nation in the world where a person who loses the popular vote can nonetheless be elected as President. We say enough! Nothing in the Constitution requires this perversion of a democracy.
Join us in asking those electors to respect the people’s choice—by voting for the candidate who won the popular election.
