December 19, 2016 10:46 PM Trump wins Electoral College vote

Anti-Trump elector revolt fails to materialize.

Trump's defeat of Hillary Clinton follows a desperate and unprecedented attempt by Democratic electors to foment a revolt by convincing 66

December 19, 2016 10:17 AM The rogue electors' long game

The 2016 Electoral College vote might set in motion the forces that eventually lead to its demise. When Alexander Hamilton sketched his design of the Electoral College, he envisioned a free-flowing debate in which electors followed the dictates of their own conscience, rather than the will of the voters who chose them — a debate not so different than the one waged 64

December 19, 2016 10:01 AM The electoral college shouldn't veto Trump's election

On Monday, 538 presidential electors will meet in their home states and Washington, D.C., in what is traditionally a formalistic footnote to the outcome of the November election.

December 18, 2016 3:30 PM GOP Electoral College members say they're giving rural America 'equal voice'

As members of the Electoral College prepare to choose Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States, some Republican electors say they are defending rural and small-town America against big-state liberalism and its support for national popular vote leader Hillary Clinton. "Our Founding Fathers established the Electoral College because those 57

December 18, 2016 3:27 AM In last-shot bid, thousands urge electoral college to block Trump at Monday vote

Pressure on members of the electoral college to select someone other than Donald Trump has grown dramatically — and noisily — in recent weeks, causing some to waver but yielding little evidence that Trump will fall short when electors convene in most state capitals Monday to cast their votes. Carole Joyce of Arizona expected her role as a GOP elector 111

December 18, 2016 2:20 AM US Electoral College Faces Sharp Scrutiny Ahead Of Trump’s Formal Endorsement

Often misunderstood and frequently maligned, the U.S. Electoral College is typically an institution that goes about its work every four years with little fanfare and even less scrutiny. The college, a group of 538 people from all 50 states and Washington, D.C., will formally elect the 45th president of the United States “on the first Monday after the second 41

December 17, 2016 10:05 PM Arizona Electoral College voters with Trump, amid onslaught of opposition, threats

The 11 Electoral College voters in Arizona appear undaunted in their decision to cast their ballots Monday for President-elected Donald Trump, despite the tens of thousands of emails, hundreds of letters and even alleged death threats. “It’s out of hand when you have such … a small group of people that is pushing so hard against millions if not hundreds 57

December 14, 2016 2:01 PM Tribute: Alan Thicke, Paragon of '80s TV Fatherhood and Canadian Identity

In college, back in the late '90s, we used to have a running joke that one of our friend's fathers was Alan Thicke. Alan Thicke was, of course, not his father and I'm still waiting on somebody to tell me the origin of the joke, which probably had some connection to a shared love of hockey. But the exact reason hardly matters, because if you were a child 66

December 6, 2016 8:47 PM Don’t be confused: An electoral college rebellion is almost certainly not going to happen

In two weeks, Donald Trump will officially become the president-elect, after the 538 members of the electoral college cast their votes. That's how this whole dumb process works: We spend two years watching 20-odd people fight it out, only to have the ultimate decision come down to 538 random people representing each of the 50 states and the District 63
