Wyoming To Cast Electoral Votes

I’ll bet you thought the presidential election was over.  Not quite yet, says Wyoming Secretary of State Max Maxfield.  Maxfield announced that the state’s Presidential Electors will meet in the State Capitol on December 17th at noon to cast their votes for U.S. President and Vice-President. Under Wyoming law, the electors are obliged to cast their votes for the candidates who won the state’s General Election.  Maxfield explains that it’s a “winner-take-all system,” with the state’s outcome not being split.  Wyoming emerged as a Republican state supporting Romney and Ryan.  Wyoming is allocated three electors in the Electoral College—one for each of its Senators and Congressional Representative.  The electors were selected by the political party whose candidates for President and Vice-President received the most votes in Wyoming’s General Election.  The three electors are Ron Micheli of Fort Bridger, Susan Thomas of Casper, and Margaret Parry of Rock Springs.
