Abstract

The 2016 election is not yet over – on December 19th Electors from across the US will meet to cast their votes for president as part of the Electoral College. Jeffrey Tulis writes that the Electoral College – which began as a deliberative institution – could be used to deny Donald Trump the presidency. He argues that a bi-partisan coalition of Electors could choose a Republican other than Trump, thus splitting the Electoral College and handing the election to the House of Representatives.
