Electors

Each presidential candidate or party nominating a candidate submits a list of 12 names as a slate of electors. These 12 Electors sign a pledge to vote for the nominee of the party that they represent (RCW 29A.56).

After the General Election is certified, the winning candidate’s electors travel to Olympia for the official casting of votes on December 14, 2020. The other parties’ electors no longer participate in the process.

Casting Votes

Each Elector casts two votes separately, one for the President and one for the Vice President.

Uniform Faithful Presidential Electors Act of 2019 – SB5074

If the Elector votes for a person other than the statewide popular vote winner of the state of Washington, then the pledge is broken and an Alternate provided by the same party replaces the Elector. If the Alternate also votes for someone other than their pledged vote, another Alternate will take their place. If the list of Alternates is exhausted, then the remaining Electors must nominate and vote in a new Alternate.

Previously in Washington

In 2016, Washington voters elected Democratic Nominee, Hilary Clinton, to receive all 12 Electoral College Votes. Four of the twelve electors chose to vote for someone other than their party’s nominee. The Secretary of State fined all four electors $1,000 each for violating their pledge. This process was challenged and went all the way to the Supreme Court where, by unanimous decision, ruled an elector could be required to vote as the state permits.

National Popular Vote Agreement

Washington State enacted SB5599 in 2009, which devotes all the state’s electors to whomever wins the national popular vote regardless of the state winner. This only takes effect when the combined number of electoral votes from participating member states is larger the majority of total electoral votes.
