A new election lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., asks that state legislators be allowed to choose their state’s electors before the Electoral College votes are tabulated in Congress next month.

The reason is that several governors of states whose 2020 presidential election results are being challenged have refused permission for their elected representatives to meet.

The case is being brought by the Amistad Project of the Thomas More Society, which has filed election-related lawsuits in five states.

Amistad is asking that legislatures in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin be allowed to meet to certify their electors before Congress acts. Joe Biden currently has 306 electors, while President Trump has 232.
