Dec 12 is not the deadline in any sense, it is just a "safe harbor" deadline. A state that supplies the list of electors by six days before the EC meets (in the various state capitols) can't have the electors challenged later. It does *not* mean that the electors have to be known at this point. -- John Cowan One art/there is/no less/no more/All things/to do/with sparks/galore --Douglas Hofstadter
