I doubt this is true, but someone told me, that if Biden dies before the election is certified, then the person with the 2nd most votes would win. Meaning it would go to Trump and not Harris. Doesn’t make sense, but does anyone know?

It's not true (like most other Pro Trump claims on whatsapp). If Biden dies Harris take her place.

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WINNING CANDIDATE DIES BEFORE CONGRESS DECLARES A WINNER?

“That’s the worst, most confusing time,” said John Fortier, director of governmental studies at the Bipartisan Policy Center. “They are going to have to figure out what to do with (Electoral College) votes cast for a candidate who has died.”

If the winning candidate dies before the Electoral College meets, the electors could coalesce around a replacement candidate recommended by the party, perhaps the vice presidential candidate.

“For the most part, these people are picked because they are loyal party people,” Fortier said. “You could have a few stray here or there, but they are not rebels.”

A party’s electors would have an incentive to coalesce around one candidate, he said, because they wouldn’t want to risk throwing the election to the other party. But there is no guarantee they would all agree on a replacement candidate.

Some states have laws that require electors to vote for the presidential candidate who won the statewide vote; other states could quickly pass laws governing the electors in the event that a candidate dies.

“The party can say what the party wants, but the states would decide what to do with those electors,” Hasen said.

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously in July that states may require electors to support the candidate picked by voters in the election. However, the court left open what would happen if the candidate dies.

“Nothing in this opinion should be taken to permit the states to bind electors to a deceased candidate,” Justice Elena Kagan wrote in a footnote to her majority opinion.

If this happens, expect litigation.

Seems like the courts blocked some states from Certifying and now Sidney Powell has filed some lawsuits. Not sure why @CountValentine or @PlatinumGuy haven’t commented yet, they seem to be following everything

I'm afraid I may need therapy. Haven't read such a confusing document in a while. Couldn't get through more than a page or two, but here's another gem
