Why not throw out the ballots of everybody that dies before inauguration day? Or at least all those who die before the electorate college convenes on Dec 16?

Because the constitution sets election day.

Where does the constitution mention election day?

If you don't draw a line on a specific day, it's a slippery slope. How early can one vote? Where do you draw the line?
It's up to the states.

Not in the constitution, but election day is by federal statute.

It sets the Nov 3 (or other Tuesday) day for the State to appoint delegates to the electorate college. The states are free to choose whom to send any time prior to that.

Interesting. And while I disagree with some of the positive things they say about Trump, their bottom line is most definitely right.

Though I always wonder what difference newspaper endorsements make.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

This newspaper has not supported a Republican for president since 1972. But we believe Mr. Trump, for all his faults, is the better choice this year. We respect and understand those who feel otherwise. We wish that we could be more enthusiastic and we hope the president can become more dignified and statesmanlike. Each American must make up his or her own mind and do what he or she thinks is best for the community and the republic. Vote your conscience. And, whatever happens, believe in the country.

Misleading. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was left-leaning in the past, but hired a right-leaning editor in 2018, who has written other pro-Trump editorials.

Anyone who reads this article and believes it is not right leaning needs to put the kool-aid down.

This is from the editorial board, not one specific editor.

This guy was able to "steal" 5 million chase UR. He's a security researcher and responsibly informed Chase. Chase compensated him by closing down his (and his family's) accounts.
