Electors only “act by authority of the state.”

The guest on this Tucker Carlson video says the Constitution gives electors the right to vote their conscience.  He’s 100% wrong.

Law Newz explains:

“In the seminal decision of Ray v. Blair, the Supreme Court made clear electors act at the privilege of the state that empowers them, and do NOT enjoy any special right to vote as they please.

“Article II, section 1 of the Constitution gives states the rights to select their electors as they please, including a right to require party and candidate loyalty.”
