Breaking News from the Supreme Court

Great news: the Supreme Court just agreed to hear two major cases we brought about the role of presidential electors!

The Supreme Court decides to hear only a tiny percentage of all the cases that come before it, so this announcement is just more evidence that our two-pronged strategy is working. Slowly but surely, the combination of our legal cases and our advocacy is going to change our system. Each day, we get closer to the goal. And today we took a particularly big step forward.

For an explainer about these cases — what the legal issues are, who are clients are, and how this relates to the way we select the president — see this webpage on our site. We’ll also have much more to come on these as we head for an oral argument this spring and a decision by the Fourth of July.

But for now, thanks for your continued support.
