Aaron Van Langevelde, Brad Raffensperger, and other state and local officials did the right thing and steered America away from the precipice.
The brief filed by Univ. of Texas law professor Sanford Levinson and myself explains why the Trump administration's efforts to exclude undocumented immigrants from the apportionment count for allocating seats in the House of Representatives goes against the text and original meaning of the Constitution.
Trump's campaign officials and attorneys are peddling this nonsense with help from credulous Fox News hosts, but their theories don't stand up to scrutiny.

No, late-arriving mail-in ballots won't swing the election's outcome. No, Joe Biden's vote totals in suburban Philadelphia aren't suspiciously high.
The newest lawsuit in Pennsylvania is a longshot attempt to argue that all mail-in voting is unconstitutional because it differs from traditional, in-person voting. It's likely to fail.
My "Jurist" Article on Expanding Freedom of Choice by Empowering More People to Vote With their Feet
The combination of foot voting and decentralization of power can offer people more and better choices than are available at the ballot box.
Biden appears to be winning, but the election is far from settled.

A lawsuit filed just days before the election asks federal courts to toss out all the votes already cast at drive-through polling stations in Harris County.

Cops demonstrated their commitment to free and fair elections by firing rubber bullets and water cannons at protesters.
President Trump threatens to delay the election over at-home voting, but a bigger problem looms: States haven’t prepared for a huge influx of mail-in ballots.
And why does he think he has the power to do that?
Whatever the latest polls say about Biden versus Trump, the Delaware Democrat almost surely has a better chance at winning the presidency than he does at undoing Milton Friedman's life work.

Klobuchar is a cop too, though it took a little longer for her record to catch up with her.
Fining non-voters would show that government is all about forcing people to do things just to make politicians happy.
You have this Democrat or this other Democrat. What other options do you need?
Letting any single state go first is a mistake. But a national primary would be problematic too. Luckily, those aren't the only two options.
