No argument from me. Happy to include your input.

This answer is too simplistic. Some states require electors to vote for the candidate they are pledged to, some have no requirement at all, other states require electors to vote for the person who won the popular vote NATIONWIDE, no matter how their own state votes. Not only that, Nebraska and Maine split their votes according to congressional districts and have two at large electors.

Writing in a candidate will NOT invalidate your ballot. Is it 100% effective? No. However, each polling station does have multiple polling monitors, watchers or observers on-site to keenly watch for any irregularities, shenanigans or tossing ballots. Look for them when you go vote! Vote tallying is generally done in front of multiple people, performed out in the open for verification, and in some cases on camera.

I am concerned that if I write in a presidential candidate, my ballot will be thrown out (and my votes for local candidates will not be counted).  How can I assure that writing in a candidate will not invalidate my ballot?
