Indiana's presidential electors meet to formally cast votes

INDIANAPOLIS—Indiana’s 11 presidential electors met Monday in Indianapolis to formally cast their ballots for President and Vice President of the United States.

The state's 11 votes went to President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson presided over the meeting, which only took about five minutes.

The Electoral College vote is set to take place in all 50 states on Monday. The results will be sent to Washington D.C. and tallied during a January 6 joint session in Congress.

In the November General Election, President-elect Joe Biden won with 306 electoral votes. Trump secured 232 votes.

It takes 270 Electoral College votes to be elected.

Most states have laws requiring their electors to vote for the winner of the popular vote in their state.

Biden is set to give remarks Monday night following the Electoral College vote.
