Three Members of Electoral College from NorCo
On December 19, the 20-member delegation of Pennsylvania's Electoral College will meet in Harrisburg to cast their votes for President Trump. Three of them - Mary Barket, Lee Snover and Peg Ferraro - will be from Northampton County.
Some have suggested that the Electoral College can be persuaded to vote for Hillary.
I've also heard that the Electoral College is a relic of our racist past and should be discarded. Without question, it gives added weight to many smaller states, just like the Senate. But its primary goal is to prevent a tyranny of the majority. We are a democratic republic, not a mobocracy.
