The notion has existed for a long time: swapping your vote to a swing state or safe state to ensure that your vote counts

Today, apps are available connecting voters who want to trade their votes to "friends" in swing states or safe states.

Apps like #NeverTrump boast that you can find someone to trade votes with by way of the honor code.

The premise: Find a friend in a safe state/swing state who is voting for Clinton/Trump and ask him to vote for your candidate in exchange for you voting for Trump/Clinton.

Yes, under the First Amendment, it's legal ... but what happened to voting your conscience? And when’s the last time you relied on the honor code anyway?

We get it, you’re not happy with the nominee options but every vote matters. So before you hit the install button, how about we just get out and vote?
