Electoral College Casts Tennessee Votes for Romney

Tennessee cast its official electoral college ballot today.

“For President of the United States, the electors of the state of Tennessee cast 11 votes for Mitt Romney.”

As a winner take all state Tennessee’s 11 electoral votes go to Mitt Romney, who won the state in landslide despite losing nationally. It took only a few minutes for the Electoral College members to vote and then sign a certificate, which will be presented to a joint session of Congress on January 6. Certificates from all 50 states will be read aloud and Barack Obama will be officially declared the winner in the presidential election.
