New Hampshire electors prepare to cast ballots for Clinton



Sunday, December 18, 2016

New Hampshire’s four electors are soon gathering in the Executive Council chambers to vote on the next president.

The 538 members of the Electoral College are meeting in their home states across the country today. New Hampshire’s four electors gather at 10 a.m. and plan to vote for Democrat Hillary Clinton, who won the state on Nov. 8.

But Republican Donald Trump is poised to capture the presidency. He’s owed 306 electoral votes based on the states he won, more than the 270 needed to win the White House. Electors in some states have talked of breaking with their states’ popular votes, but a mass movement doesn’t appear to be underfoot.

New Hampshire’s electors are all women who have served in elected office.
