if you started to receive attempts to have you change your vote, you receive threats, obscene calls, attempts at bribes to change your vote to anyone but Donald?

Like these guys:

"Several things merit mentioning. First, you have every right to lobby an elector. I delight in receiving this type of communication from a fellow American," wrote L. Scott Mann, a Texas elector. "Second, this is not a pure democracy, it is a republic....Third, the Electoral College does not exist in order to give you a 'do over' because you don't like the results; it exists to preserve the nature of the republic.
He went on to add, "Your feelings notwithstanding, it is not my duty to care one whit what the plurality or majority of Americans want. My job is to represent the decision of the winning party in the Texas Presidential election. It's not that your feelings don't matter at all, they just don't matter here. The law and U.S. Constitution do.""

"Alex Kim, also of Texas said he was receiving "about 4,000 emails a day." He didn't sound angry, but annoyed because no one understands the rules. "There is no such thing as a national popular vote," he reminded. "The only vote that matters to me as a Texas Elector is the Texas vote. ... I respect your part in the political process, but frankly, since I am a Texas elector, the political opinions of non-Texas voters means nothing to me. I do not vote or get involved in your state, I am not sure why you are trying to interfere in mine."

I'd tell them I was seriously considering changing my vote for Trump, until I got this phone call/email/letter. It's just too much at this point. Now I'm back to being all in for Trump. Thanks for calling/writing/emailing.

If possible, have the state police chase a couple of them down and prosecute them.

Word gets out fast that you are taking no shit and that will stop most of it.

Incidentally Martin Sheen ought to be killed with fire for arocking an elector.

I wouldn't respond at all. I'm not changing my vote, but there's nothing I could possibly say that would get them to shut up.

I'd just ignore them and possibly get a chuckle out of some of the email messages.  Any threats would be turned over to the appropriate authorities.  Besides, as a member of the electoral college, my duty would be to represent the voters in my state, not some cry babies from other states.  Sorry, I don't make the rules, I'm just a pawn in the game!

I'd add that they should vote in local school board elections and demand that they put civics class back into the curriculum since they obviously didn't get that as part of their education.

 I think the electors for hillary should flip their votes to Trump in support of their fellow electors...

Yep, setup a gofund me. Let them know when it hits x dollars (and x is a BIG number) that I will allow a vote to dictate my final choice. With proper wordsmithing they will think I mean to let them vote via poll or something, but what I actually mean is that the Nov 8 vote will dictate my choice. Get rich and do my job at the same time, win / win.

Just hearing talk of these "electors" thinking about changing their votes , or sitting it out, sends chills down my spine.

Its like I dont even know whos running this country anymore. Where do they get the Balls to think they know better then the People?

Take all the bribe money and then still vote for Trump!

No, actually, I would send them a note similar to some of the others explaining to them that they have me confused with somebody who actually cares whether they live or die let alone who they want me to vote for the college.

I'm happy that liberals are educating themselves about how our system of government works. Their tears of grief also make me happy. Skimming through Twitter this morning has put me in a great mood.

This is the first time I saw anyone say that you have the right to lobby an elector.

I do not accept that as factual at this time.

Last week you were calling me an irredeemable ignorant racist, and now you're begging me to "vote my conscience".


How is that supposed to work?

I would have had a prepackaged response to anyone asking me to flip that goes something like this:

No.

Report Democrat corruption to the FBI? They didn't intend to threaten or bribe you. No fucks given.

I'd be tempted to ask for a million in my account prior to voting, then still vote for Trump.

They want to play dirty, so will I.

I'd guess that you have a right to lobby the electors. I'd also guess that they have a right not to be lobbied. It seems like your vote is your only way of lobbying that is supported by the law. It seems like it should be more like a jury, they are supposed to hear the trial and not be influenced outside of the court hearings.

Threats are forwarded to local law enforcement, the Federal Beauru of Investigation, and news outlets.

Bribes would be openly accepted, but I would vote for Trump anyway.
