Words Matter: Copy This Letter to Electors

Words are powerful, and time is running out. If you'd like to write to members of the Electoral College, feel free to copy my words. Now is the time. They vote on Monday.

Your responsibility as a presidential elector is tremendous, and I commend you for your political engagement.

Now, you have the rare and wonderful opportunity to put the Electoral College to work in its proper way. It was created to prevent people like Donald Trump from assuming power and becoming president.

I am asking you to use your best judgment and vote for another candidate. Hillary Clinton would certainly be a logical option, given her margin of victory in the popular vote. However, if you cannot in good conscience vote for Secretary Clinton, then I respectfully ask that you vote for a candidate that you and your fellow electors find more worthy.

This is not a partisan issue. This is a matter of maintaining our wonderful democracy. There are numerous reasons why the president-elect is not fit to be president, and I have no doubt that you are familiar with them all – from his temperament, to his lies, to his attitudes about women and immigrants, the list goes on and on. Add to that, the Russian interference with our election, and you have more than enough valid reasons to cast your vote in a manner that supports the mandate of the Electoral College and protects American values.

We only need a handful of brave patriots in the Electoral College to act responsibly and save our country. I hope with all my heart that you will be one of them.

Thank you for your service and your consideration.
