Faithless Democrat elector switches vote from Hillary Clinton to Bernie Sanders


Guys.. Bernie can still win.

According to an article by, a “faithless” elector in Maine voted their conscience today by casting a vote for Bernie Sanders.

In a facebook post, the elector went on to say “If my vote today could have helped Secretary Clinton win the presidency, I would have voted for her. But as the Electoral College meets all across this nation on this day, I see no likelihood of 38 Republican electors defecting from their party and casting their ballots for Secretary Clinton,”

I am not a Clinton elector, I am a Democratic elector. I do not represent Democrats all over the country, I represent the Democrats in Maine.
I cast my vote for Bernie Sanders not out of spite, or malice, or anger, or as an act of civil disobedience. I mean no disrespect to our nominee. I cast my vote to represent thousands of Democratic Maine voters – many less than a third my age – who came into Maine politics for the first time this year because of Bernie Sanders.
