Ok, so I researched how one would actually flip the electoral college vote between now and December 19, which unsurprisingly will take a lot more than signing a petition. The short version is, this is something that happens by yelling at statehouses instead of yelling at the federal government, and if we could convince Texas alone to allot its votes to Hillary instead of Trump (which is improbable but simultaneously very Texan), Hillary wins. But obviously we need to be doing this on all fronts, all red states, to maximize our (still slim) odds.

This would be totally legal. It's something a statehouse is allowed to do, and it perfectly suits the purpose of the electoral college, which allows cooler heads to overrule a mob, and gives time-travel flexibility if a candidate reveals himself to be totally unsuitable for office in between the election and the meeting of the college -- say, by dying (it's happened) or by appointing a white supremacist to a key administrative position. Or massively violating conflict of interest principles with his business. Or the revelation that there had been massive voter suppression, and interference by a hostile foreign government.

The call to action is here. (Link goes to Medium, which I figure has much better exposure than my Dreamwidth.) Please share.
