The last acts in the presidential drama conducted in North Carolina for more than 200 years are about to take place.
Presidential electors will meet in Raleigh’s antebellum Capitol Building on Monday to pledge the state’s 15 electoral votes to Republican Donald Trump. It’s part of the formal process to choose the next president based upon state-by-state voting results.
Last month’s popular vote determined that electors nominated by the North Carolina Republican Party will cast the official ballots for the state. The electors hail from Hampstead in the east to Hickory in the west.
Some Democrats upset with the Nov. 8 results have urged electors in states not to cast their ballot for Trump.
