Faithless electors: what happens if they matter?

I just wrote on this over at the Election Law @ Moritz website.  I very much welcome additional thoughts and ideas on this issue from the other Election Law guest bloggers (and others).  

Given the recent news from Washington State, and the previous news from Georgia, and the historically high unpopularity of both presidential candidates, it seems as if this really could be the year of the faithless elector--at least at levels we haven't seen before, and potentially litigation over the issue that pushes the legal and constitutional issues beyond Ray v. Blair.

They've never mattered. They won't matter now. Next post.
