Three Vermonters are planning to gather to cast the state’s three votes in the Electoral College that will formally elect President Barack Obama to a second term.
Today is the day when the state’s three members of the Electoral College – the national body that actually elects the president and vice president – meet at the Statehouse.
Vermont was the first state whose electoral votes were placed in the column for President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
Today, electors from around the country gather in their state capitals to make official the Obama-Biden victory in their bid for a second term.
Vermont’s electors are state Rep. Kevin Christie of Hartford, Sherry Merrick of Post Mills and William Sander of Jeffersonville.
