    Electoral College could see historic numbers of ‘faithless electors’

    Half a dozen Democratic electors in the Electoral College have signed onto an agreement to attempt to block Donald Trump from getting into the White House.

    In one last effort to deny Donald Trump the presidency, half a dozen Democratic electors in the Electoral College have signed onto an agreement to attempt to block Trump from getting into the White House.

    These electors are trying to convince their Republican counterparts to also break with their oaths, and state law, in some cases, to refuse to vote for Trump, in the process becoming what is called a ‘faithless elector.’

    While Democrats realize that it is unlikely they will be able to convince the 37 Republicans needed to deny Trump the presidency, they feel their efforts are worth it. Even if they are not able to stop Trump, their efforts would undermine faith in the Electoral College and would hopefully inspire the United States to take a closer look at this system that many feel is antiquated.

    a group of election lawyers and computer scientists claim that the election results may have been manipulated or hacked in three swing states that went to Donald Trump for the 2016 presidential election, and the group wants Hillary Clinton to seek a recount.

    According to the group, Clinton’s numbers were down 7 percent in Wisconsin in areas that used electronic voting machines as opposed to paper ballots or optical scanners, resulting in the possibility of 30,000 votes that were not attributed to Clinton. She lost the state by 27,000.
