Supreme Court rules presidential electors can be forced to uphold popular vote

Supreme Court votes on rogue electorsThe Supreme Court sought to eliminate one of many potential problems facing the 2020 race for the White House Monday, ruling that states can block members of the Electoral College from ignoring the popular vote on Election Day – and risk altering the course of history.

The unanimous decision will prevent most of the 538 presidential electors from seeking to change the results of the presidential race when carrying out their ministerial duties a month after the election.

Thirty-two states already require the people chosen on Election Day to cast ballots for the winner of their states' popular vote. In some of those states, rogue electors can be replaced or fined. Eighteen states have no such requirement.
