We’re live-blogging the Elections and Ethics Committee hearing. Watch the hearing here and stay tuned for our updates.

The Electoral College process by which we elect our nation’s President and Vice President is as old as the Constitution itself.

Representative Pete Lund introduced a bill last month that that would rig Michigan elections at the expense of the people by changing the way our state allocates its Electoral College votes.

We need mindful public input and debate about anything as important as changing our centuries old system for electing the President. Any changes to the Electoral College should come from Michiganders themselves, not the elected officials who stand to benefit.

Today, at 12:00 p.m., the Elections and Ethics Committee will hold a hearing on this anti-democratic bill. You can watch the hearing live here. We’ll be there in-person live tweeting and posting all the latest updates to this page, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, we can let our elected representatives know that we don’t support them changing the rules of the game for their own benefit. Sign this petition to the Elections and Ethics Committee telling them not to rig the Electoral College.
