Via ABC, Electors will gather in their respective state capitols to engage in a voting process that is open to the press. The earliest results will likely come in after 10 a.m. ET and the latest around 7 p.m. ET.
Sorry, one more state in for absolute final count:
And another defection from Hillary:
How sweet, now closing with ‘America The Beautiful’ sung by kids. Nice job, Texas!
37 VP votes for Mike Pence and 1 for Carly Fiorina.
Trump wins! 36 for Trump! One for Ron Paul, 1 for Kasich. So ultimately with all that, only two defections from Trump. More defections from Hillary than from Trump.
Here we go… They’re swearing in the replacements now, 4 women.
Now electing chairman. Woman named Noble wins the spot.
Oh lord, now they have to vote for the Secretary of the meeting. Come on, Texas! Now, they got it, they approved her by acclamation.
Now onto the balloting for the vote, vote is by secret ballot, deposited into box, which they will later count.
3 for Trump.
Now on break, but should do it when they come back. Montana is the only other state out with 3 votes. So that means 40 votes pending. One, Chris Suprun is expected to defect.
Best joke of day?
Texas may put Trump over, pending, here’s livestream. Texas was the only place where there was a predicted defection from Trump, Chris Suprun. Right now, they are replacing some folks who vacated their positions.
Someone whose name sounds like Shelly Soros is replaced, lol.
4 faithless electors in Washington defect from Hillary – 3 go for Colin Powell, 1 for Faith Spotted Eagle, a Native American environmentalist. Washington and Colorado were the expected ‘Hamilton Schemers’ who failed big time.
Count now 241-127.
Michigan, North Dakota, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Ohio all go Trump. Oregon, New Mexico go to Hillary.

Hillary Elector tried to vote for John Kasich, which was the ‘Hamilton Elector’ scheme, but elector was dismissed.
Colorado’s scheme fails, protesters have big sad…
Maine is one of the two which isn’t winner take all, but apportioned by districts. 3 were supposed to be of Hillary one for Trump.
One wanted to go for Bernie, David Bright, but was forced to vote for Hillary. Just like the election itself, Democratic establishment still shilling for Hilary…
Of 10 electors who were supposed to vote for Hillary, one, Muhammad Abdurrahman, refused. He was replaced by an alternate. 179-103.
Apparently he was a disgusted Bernie voter:
Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin, Kansas, Maryland, Alabama
All for Trump except for the 10 in Maryland. 179-93.

More sad liberal tears:
Not a good day for Clintons.
NY, Rhode Island, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Louisiana
No defections yet, Trump 133, Clinton 83
There are expected defections from Hillary with Washington, Colorado and Maine electors whose votes are still to come.
Oklahoma, Arizona, Georgia, Kentucky, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois
All the expected for Trump go for Trump, all expected to go for Clinton go for her. Count now 90-37
Mississippi, South Carolina:
All Trump, now 48, Clinton 7.
New Hampshire and Vermont:
These were two states that went Hillary and so do their electors.
All Trump. They were required by law to vote for the winner and they did.
Hillary losing votes:
Trump isn’t losing votes but Hillary is. Maine elector David Bright says he will not be voting for Hillary but will vote for Bernie Sanders to acknowledge his young supporters.
First votes in! Indiana:
Awww, liberal tears, via Bruce Kopp:
