U.S. Supreme Court rules presidential electors can be forced to uphold popular decision

With a 9-0 vote, The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that states can block members of the Electoral College from ignoring the popular vote on Election Day.

Justice Elena Kagan wrote: "Today, we consider whether a State may also penalize an elector for breaking his pledge and voting for someone other than the presidential candidate who won his State's popular vote. We hold that a State may do so,".
