There’s a new celebrity PSA out tonight featuring some big-name actors asking members of the electoral college to do the right thing and step in to vote their conscience (a.k.a. not Donald Trump)
In the video for Unite For America, they explain that the electoral college was designed to allow people to step in and prevent a “demagogue” or someone uniquely unqualified to be president from doing so. They make it clear they’re not advocating a vote for Clinton, just “any eligible person” they trust to be competent as president.
The video stars Martin Sheen, Debra Messing, James Cromwell, BD Wong, Noah Wyle, Freda Payne, Bob Odenkirk, J. Smith Cameron, Michael Urie, Moby, Mike Farrell, Loretta Swit, Richard Schiff, Christine Lahti, Kerry Russel, Steven Pasquale, Emily Tyra, Talia Balsam and many more.
The Electors Trust provides free and strictly confidential legal support to any Elector who wishes to vote their conscience.
