The electoral college vote is today. Ever since the election, this is the day that millions of people have been watching and preparing for. President-Elect Donald Trump won 306 electoral votes, and he only needed 270 to win the election. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton beat him in the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, but that simply wasn’t enough to win in the electoral college. Since the election, thousands of people have been writing and emailing Republican electors, hoping to convince them to change their minds and flip their vote against Trump. But so far, only one Republican elector has publicly stated that he plans to do that.

Although Trump is likely to win the Electoral College, it’s still a good idea to keep an eye on what’s happening. So what time is does the Electoral College cast its vote and how does the process work?

The Electoral College will vote in all 50 states and in D.C. today, but the time will vary from state-to-state. We’ll likely be able to get a good idea of who won by the time the day is over, especially from states that livestream their results or publicize who won right away. However, the votes won’t be officially counted until January 6, when they are counted by Congress.
