It’s the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December in a presidential election year, so we all know what that means – Electoral College day.
As per the Constitution, electors in 50 states (plus the District of Columbia) will meet today to cast their votes and choose the next president of the United States. If the electors vote the way their states did, Donald Trump will win the presidency with 306 Electoral College votes to Hillary Clinton’s 232.
Trump must win 270 to win the election.
Beginning with the first votes around 7 a.m. PT, we will updated the action live right here. Click back at 12:45 p.m. PT to follow along.
