The OpDeny270 movement is a strategic plan to write in Bernie Sanders for president. No registration is required in 10 states (including Washington) for those votes to be counted. California is the 11th state pending approval .
The 10 write-in states are: Vermont, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, Iowa, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Alabama and New Jersey.
Sanders need only win between two and six states to deny either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump from getting the needed 270 electoral votes. There is also a popular write-in candidate, Evan McMullin of Utah, who may win that state’s six electoral votes.
When no presidential candidate reaches 270, the House votes for president between the top three finishers. The House delegation from each state gets one vote.

We believe Sanders offers a great chance of being selected. There will be a new House that decides, fueled by Berniecrats.
Many House Republicans no longer endorse Trump. They do not like Clinton, and would love to deny her, too. More damaging information and scandals come out about Trump and Cllnton every day.
Sanders is safe, well liked and respected by many members of the House, with whom he served for years.
