Democrat House Passes Cheney-Led Bill To Change Electoral College

Measure passed with nine Republicans voting in support – all of them are either retiring at the end of this term or having lost primary challenges to pro-Trump candidates.

  • The Democrat-controlled House voted 229-203  to reform the Electoral Count Act.
  • The measure was crafted by two members of the chamber’s special committee looking into the Jan. 6, 2021, riot on Capitol Hill that attempted to stop Congress’ certification of  Electoral Colleges votes making Democrat Joe Biden president.
  • The members are Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney  and Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif.
  • In the Senate, lawmakers are mulling a different version of the Electoral College reform, one that seeks to raise the number of lawmakers in either chamber needed to object to election results.
