2016 US elections

Editor's note: Four Democratic electors in Washington state and two Republican electors in Texas successfully cast votes for candidates other than their state's nominee today. While several democratic electors in Maine, Minnesota and Colorado attempted to cast votes for different candidates, they had their ballots banned due to state rules binding them to their state's popular vote. Trump has surpassed the 270-vote threshold to formally win the presidency, but the vote is ongoing. - Jillian
