RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia’s Democratic members of the Electoral College are all strong supporters of Hillary Clinton. What they’re less sure of is the process they will be a part of next week.
On Monday, the electors will meet at the Virginia Capitol to cast their votes for the next president of the United States. Usually a ceremonial step in the road to the presidency, this year’s meeting of the Electoral College has drawn intense scrutiny.
In interviews with The Associated Press before the meeting, the majority of Virginia’s electors expressed support for changing the Electoral College, an original feature of the Constitution, though they were divided on how to go about doing so.
All but one said with certainty they plan to vote for Hillary Clinton as they are bound to do.
