Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she will serve as an Electoral College elector in New York – a solidly blue state with 29 electoral votes – and that she is really looking forward to it.
“I’m sure I’ll get to vote for Joe and Kamala in New York. So that’s pretty exciting,” Clinton said of her upcoming role in next week’s election on Sirius XM’s Signal Boost.
Clinton shared her voting plans.
“I was going to vote early. That was my current plan because New York has done it for the first time,” Clinton said. “But the lines, even where I live, are like two, three, four hours long. So I’m waiting for either a break in the line, so I can vote early, or I’ll just take a bag lunch and go stand in line and vote on Election Day, depending upon what I can get done.”
Clinton added that the media and Democrats have legal teams that “preparing for every scenario you can imagine,” such as President Donald Trump attempting to use the Supreme Court to steal the election.
Asked by host Zerlina Maxwell if she ever thinks about the possibilty of Trump getting reelected, Clinton firmly said she chooses not to.
“No, I don’t,” Clinton replied. “I did a podcast with Kara Swisher and she asked me the other day. I said, ‘Kara, I’m not gonna think about it. I cannot imagine that he would be reelected after the damage that he’s caused and I can’t imagine four more years of this abuse and destruction.’ So no, I don’t think about it. I refuse to.”
