- It prohibits state legislatures from changing the law after Election Day to overrule their voters and the results of the popular election.

- It strictly limits opportunities for members of Congress to second-guess states’ certified election results.
- And it clarifies the vice president’s ministerial role in the counting of electoral votes, reinforcing that the vice president does not decide election results.
