Republican-nominated electors in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada today cast their presidential “electoral” votes for President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Although their states certified the official Electoral College votes from their Democrat counterparts for pro-abortion candidate Joe Biden, the act of voting for Trump preserves their right to have their votes count should legal challenges in their states ultimate reserve the results.

The Pennsylvania Republican Party said the Trump campaign asked the Republican electors to do this in order to preserve any potential rights to legal challenges that could overturn Monday’s vote due to evidence of election fraud.

“We took this procedural vote to preserve any legal claims that may be presented going forward,” Trump campaign Pennsylvania chair Bernie Comfort said in a statement. “This was in no way an effort to usurp or contest the will of the Pennsylvania voters.”

Republican-nominated electors in Georgia did the same thing. As the Washington Post reported, “They are state Republicans who “cast” votes during this meeting for Trump and Pence just in case the U.S. Supreme Court takes action that overturns the presidential vote in Georgia.”

And Republican members of the Electoral College are attempting to do the same thing.
