Title
The Role of Presidential Electors

Jason and Adam of Equal Citizens talk about last week’s big decision in which a federal appellate court said that presidential electors are constitutionally free to vote for whatever they candidate they choose. They discuss the legal reasoning, the practical impact, what comes next, and how it might help the democracy reform movement. [Note: Jason’s audio isn’t great for the first 10 minutes, but it greatly improves after that. Bear with us!]
