Case issues:

  • Is Colorado’s law that requires electors to vote for the candidate that won the popular vote in Colorado an unconstitutional violation of the 12th Amendment?
  • Does a presidential elector have a constitutionally protected right to exercise discretion, which would give them standing to sue the state, if they are prevented by state law from casting their electoral vote of choice?
