Legality of Electoral College process challenged in San Antonio, elsewhere

The San Antonio Express-News Feb 21, 2018

 In a rare move, the constitutionality of the country’s Electoral College process is being challenged in lawsuits filed Wednesday in four states, including Texas.

A coalition of law firms led by nationally renowned attorney David Boies and joined by one of the country’s largest civil rights groups, the League of United Latin American Citizens, filed four federal lawsuits in two politically red states, Texas and South Carolina, and two traditionally blue states, California and Massachusetts.

The suits challenge the winner-take-all method that states use to allocate their Electoral College votes. The Texas suit was filed in federal court in San Antonio.

If successful, the suits could change the way the country selects its president.
