Maine convention made a mistake and elected Gov. LePage as an elector. - that's illegalSubmitted by joeinmo on Sun, 05/06/2012 - 17:16
An elected official is not able to be an elector.
An elector is considered an elected position, and you can not hold 2 elected positions at once.
From the Constitution:
2: Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.
Person holding an Office of Trust - That should include Gov.
Person holding Office of Profit under the united states should mean Treasurer
