Voters look to the Electoral College to protect the American people from a harmful leader​

Everywhere, USA -- November 23, 2016 -- This week, a concerned non-partisan grassroots group of American citizens launched ElectorsChoose.org, a new website giving breath to the expanding movement to encourage electors to change the outcome of the 2016 United States presidential election. The Electoral College, established in 1787, provides electors the right to use their votes as a means to protect and preserve the American people from a leader who stands in opposition to the Constitution, American values and its security leader.

Led by a group of deeply concerned Americans who feel that Donald Trump is unfit to serve as President of the United States, ElectorsChoose.org gives visitors practical resources for how to contact their electors and ask them to vote against Donald J. Trump or abstain entirely in order to prevent Trump from reaching the necessary 270 votes in the Electoral College to officially win the 2016 presidential race. 

Electorschoose.org helps bridge politically diverse individuals and grassroots organizations through their non-partisan message of unity, offering information and support that can be used by liberals and conservatives seeking to stop a Trump Presidency. 

“Our grassroots coalition sprang up from the inspiration of the Change.org petition that has now garnered almost 4.5 million signatures. We aim to bridge the right and the left of our country, and think the most pragmatic solution is to encourage Electoral College members to vote against Trump or abstain,” said R.E. Singer, one of ElectorsChoose.org’s group organizers. “The electoral college system was designed not just to distribute voting power, but to fight the potential takeover of America by a leader who undermines the values and security of the American people. We hope to lawfully change hearts and minds of electors and public officials before the December 19 electoral vote. We urge the American public to join this fight for the greater good.”

Website content includes the following information:

  • A call to action for joining the movement
  • Contact information for electors
  • A sample letter
  • A sign-up form for local action
  • Additional resources and information
Site organizers plan to expand the website to include a more comprehensive social media toolkit, videos, and a hub for connecting locals by state. Meanwhile, supporters are encouraged to spread the word, make voices heard and use hashtags #electorschoose.
