Alabama electors to cast their votes for Donald Trump

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama members of the Electoral College are gathering to cast their votes for Donald Trump.

Electors are gathering across the country Monday to cast their official votes for president.

Alabama Republican Party Chairwoman Terry Lathan said the state’s electors are “rock solid 100 percent” behind Trump. Trump won Alabama with more than 62 percent of the vote.

All of Alabama’s nine electors told The Associated Press they intend to stick with Trump. They cited both their belief in him as president and the oath they took to vote as the majority of Alabama voters did.

A final demonstration by people opposed to Trump becoming president is scheduled outside the Alabama Statehouse ahead of Monday’s vote.
