Bill Weld challenges Electoral College

Boston Herald Feb 22, 2018

Former Gov. Bill Weld is among a group of plaintiffs suing Gov. Charlie Baker and Secretary of State Bill Galvin alleging the Bay State’s winner-take-all system of assigning electoral votes in presidential elections is unconstitutional.

Every four years, Massachusetts awards all of its electoral votes — 11 in 2016 — to the winner of the statewide vote, whether it’s a razor-thin victory or a landslide.

Weld and two other plaintiffs allege that the practice violates the U.S. Constitution, essentially silencing the voices of voters supporting minority parties.
