Inside Perspectives on the Electoral College, Part 1

The Electoral College met last month and formally cast their votes for the president of the United States. Washington State elector, Brett Chiafalo, co-founded the Hamilton Electors, a movement aimed to block president elect Donald Trump’s presidency by encouraging electors to vote for a Republican alternate for President.

Here’s KBCS’s Yuko Kodama speaking with Chiafalo and another Washington elector, Esther John, as they reflect on the role of the Electoral College.

How Some Electors Aim To Block A Trump Presidency

Bret Chiafalo is an Elector from Washington state’s second congressional district.  He has co-founded the Hamilton Electors, a movement intended to block a Trump Presidency through the US electoral college.  KBCS Producer and  Washington State Elector, Esther Little Dove John, spoke with Chiafalo in the KBCS studio recently.  He begins the segment by explaining how the Hamilton Electors intend to carry out this plan.
