Timeline: how 2020 US election scenarios could play out

Republican state legislatures could override the voters

State legislatures are constitutionally allowed to pick their own electors to vote for president at the electoral college.

Republicans – who control the legislature in swing states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, Arizona and Wisconsin – could decide that the election results are illegitimate, citing the disputed counting process. So they may declare the counting null and void, and select electors to support Trump. This is an actual scenario a Trump campaign legal adviser discussed with the
Atlantic’s Gellman.
