Electoral College Live Stream: Watch the Electors Vote Online for Free

All eyes will be on the electoral college in 50 states plus D.C. today, as electors cast their votes for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. According to the results of the presidential election, Trump should win hands down with 306 electoral college votes. But things could still change, especially if a push for electors to turn faithless and flip their votes succeeds. There are a handful of ways to watch the results as they come in live online for free, including links to multiple livestreams for various states that are broadcasting their electoral votes as they’re cast. We have one livestream above where the electoral votes from different states are being shown.

We’re also providing links to where you will be able to watch livestreams of the electoral college votes in some states. However, keep in mind that not all of these states are confirmed, and some of them may be down during the vote depending on the state’s rules. You can find the state of interest to below — they’re listed in alphabetical order — and the state’s listing will tell you if a live broadcast is available or not.

If you want to watch general live coverage of the electoral college results without logging in or needing cable verification, try CBS News or ABC News Go. CSPAN is also offering all-day livestream coverage of the electoral college here, although you may need to authenticate a cable subscription to view this link.

If you want to watch electoral college results as they happen in each state, see the links in the list below. States with embeddable livestream videos available will also have their video under their state name.
