Kansas Electors Get Emails Ahead of Electoral College Vote

KSAL StaffNovember 27, 2016

Kansans who will cast presidential Electoral College votes have been getting scores of emails ahead of the Dec. 19 vote.

Kansas Republican Party Chairman Kelly Arnold and outgoing State Rep. Mark Kahrs have each received more than 25,000 emails. The Hutchinson News reports Republican Ashley McMillan Hutchinson responded to some of the emails flooding her inbox until they crashed the email server last weekend.

Arnold says some messages urge him to vote for Clinton or to abstain or to vote for another Republican.

In Kansas, electors aren’t bound by law or under threat of penalty if they switch.

But Clayton Barker, Kansas Republican Party Executive Director, and also an elector, says the party selects electors who are reliable to vote for the winner of the state’s popular vote.
