Electoral College vote – Open Thread

270 Electoral College votes are needed to win.

Some time before 6 pm ET, the tally was 304 Trump vs. 224 Clinton.
(Live vote tally here)

Donald Trump is officially the next POTUS!

So far, all of the electors in states who should vote for Trump, did so.

Electors who went rogue are Democrats:

  • In Minnesota, Muhammad Abdurrahman, a former Bernie Sanders delegate to the Democratic National Convention, attempted to vote for no candidate. His vote was declared invalid and an alternate elector was appointed, enabling the state to go ahead and deliver its 10 electoral votes for Hillary Clinton. (The Hill)
  • In Washington, while 8 of the state’s 12 electors voted for Clinton, 4 electors went rogue, 2 of whom voted for Colin Powell, and 2 for Faith Spotted Eagle — a Native American who has been active in the Dakota pipeline protests. (ZeroHedge)
