Former Libertarian VP Candidate Challenges Electoral College in Massachusetts

Courthouse News Feb 21, 2018

BOSTON (CN) – Former governor and Libertarian vice presidential candidate William Weld is asking the federal court to toss a Massachusetts law awarding all 11 of the state’s presidential electors to the candidate who wins the popular vote.

“Under the [Winner Take All] system, millions of Massachusetts citizens have been and will continue to be denied their constitutional right to an equal vote in the presidential election,” the Feb. 21 complaint claims.

In 2016 Hillary Clinton won 60 percent of the vote in Massachusetts, but received all of the state’s electoral votes, essentially nullifying every resident’s vote against her, the complaint argues.
