I don't endorse trying to flip electors,* but the constitutionality of those state automatic invalidation laws is probably not settled, do if you're doing this you might as well write 'em all.

I haven't lost anyone to this yet, but I have this awkward feeling that it's only a matter of time. I had my first serious experience of awkwardly trying to serve as a friend's impromptu suicide call line** a couple of nights ago. I'm sure it won't be the last.

*Mainly because I think that if it succeeds it is more likely to precipitate a coup or civil war than it is to result in the peaceful installation of a different president, and if it gets to be a serious thing but ultimately fails it will just be more political fodder for the fascists' ‘the system is rigged against us’ narrative that is helping to make all this shit politically viable in the first place.

**I'm not qualified to do this. They messaged me that they'd called Trans Lifeline and it was over capacity and I was sort of thinking on my feet.
