Elector Binding Law Could Be Passed

A law binding presidential electors to vote for their pledged candidate could be passed, according to Lt. Governor Dan Patrick.

As the Texas Tribune reports, Patrick said that a law binding presidential electors to their pledged candidate could be passed, if elector Christopher Suprun does not vote for Donald Trump.

Suprun announced through the New York Times that he plans on voting for a different candidate than Donald Trump. Suprun mentioned Ohio Governor John Kasich as a possible candidate that electors could support, instead of Trump.

Governor Greg Abbott seemed to express support for a binding law's passage, tweeting "This must be done as part of our election integrity plan."

Electors will cast their votes for President on December 19th.
