About Equal Votes

Equal Votes is a crowdfunded legal challenge to the “winner-take-all” method of choosing state electors for presidential elections. If we can raise $250k by May 31, 2017, we will take the Electoral College to court.

A message from our Founder, Lawrence Lessig

Our Case Against “Winner Take All”

  • “Winner-take-all” is nowhere in the Constitution
  • States do not have the right to choose electors in a way this is itself unconstitutional
  • Several prominent legal scholars believe that “winner-take-all” violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment

Lawrence Lessig has made a more complete case for this important legal effort
