Electoral College Votes For President Monday [VIDEO]

The 538 members of the Electoral College will convene in their respective states Monday to vote for the United States’ next president, a process that is usually little more than a legal formality following the popular vote tally on Election Day. This year, however, last-ditch efforts are ongoing to convince at least 37 Republicans to become “faithless electors” who vote for someone other than President-elect Donald Trump, who lost the popular contest to Democrat Hillary Clinton by nearly 3 million votes. Attempts to oust Trump in this manner are not expected to succeed. The Electoral College votes will not be counted until Jan. 6 in a joint congressional session, at which point members of Congress may choose to challenge individual electors or state-wide results.
