Congress Crushes Trump’s 2024 Coup Plan By Passing Electoral Count Act Reform

Once the refomed Electoral Count Act passed the House, Trump’s hopes of staging another coup attempt in 2024 were crushed.

According to a statement from the Campaign Legal Center provided to PoliticusUSA, here is what the updated Electoral Reform Act will do:

  • It prohibits state legislatures from changing the law after Election Day to overrule their voters and the results of the popular election. 
  • It provides procedures to resolve disputes about electors and election certifications before those disputes reach Congress. 
  • 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.
