Hundreds protest the electoral college at Capitol building in Sacramento

Former President Bill Clinton cast his ballot for his wife, failed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, at Monday's Electoral College meeting in Albany.

Prior to Monday's vote, Lessig estimated as many as 20 electors could flip ― a claim not supported by an Associated Press survey of electors nor the GOP's own whip count.

It's Electoral College decision day, and Americans are watching as Donald Trump is officially handed the White House via ballots of electors from every state in the country.

Her 16-year-old niece will be joining her for the ceremony, where the electors will be sworn in before voting.

At midday on Monday, electors in 18 states had voted, with 117 votes cast for Trump and 79 for Clinton, the New York Times reported.

Suprun suggested in the op-ed that other Republican electors are willing to abandon their party's nominee, but there's little evidence that's the case.

To win the presidency, a candidate needs at least 270 votes. Trump trails Clinton by more than 2.5 million votes, the biggest margin in raw numbers by which a president has lost the popular vote.

A total of 538 votes will be cast 51 locations by Electoral College electors, who are typically made up of political party leaders. Congress has never sustained an objection to an electoral vote.

As of 11 a.m., there had been just one faithless elector: A Maine Democrat voted for U.S. Sen.

Like most of the protesters, Moore was doubtful they could change the electors' votes, but said, "if we can get one to question it, it would be worth it". Dozens of electors also signed an open letter demanding an intelligence briefing over Russian meddling in the election before they formally cast ballots.

Because Republican President-elect Donald Trump won MI in the November 8 presidential election, the 16 electors chosen by the Republican Party prior to the election will represent MI voters in the Electoral College.

In fact, MI law makes it next to impossible for electors to change their votes.

Barbara Holzmark, from Leawood, said she was a lifelong Republican.

"I will not give up all hope until he's inaugurated, and after he's inaugurated, if he is, then impeachment isn't far behind", Brensinger said.
