Thank you for the heart, anonymus, and I have a question about the electoral college

Looking at the time after 1014 can the Republican controlled states divide up their states electorates by voting districts? If so, what can we do to avoid this?

1. States can choose electors however they want.

They could let the governor pick them.

From the constitution:
Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress


Best way to avoid this is to GOTV for your state elections!
