Under 3 U.S.C. 15, if there is a question as to which of two or more sets
of electtors to count, the following rule applies: "But if the two Houses
shall disagree in respect of the counting of such votes, then, and in that
case, the votes of the electors whose appointment shall have been certified
by the executive of the State, under the seal thereof, shall be counted."
