Electors meet in their respective state capitals on the Monday after the second Wednesday in December. Each state has electors equal to its representation in Congress.

...

Any word on faithless electors so far ? I have read that many states have already voted today.

President-Elect Ron Paul will win all electoral votes, as all electors are in fact secret agents for liberty, justice, and the gold standard.

If the Ron Paul Ninja Electors don't steal this, then I think we can conclude that the Ron Paul Revolution has been something of a failure.

The only faithless electors were supposedly from Alaska and Texas. Wait for those to come in.

Also, Nevada, New Mexico & Wyoming are in. That's 36 states and no surprises. All eyes now on Mrs Miller in Alaska.

California, Massachusetts, Iowa, Nebraska, N Dakota confirmed, that's 41 states.

Can't find news reports from D.C., Maryland, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, Minnesota, South Dakota, Montana, Alaska or Hawaii yet but assume they have voted.

According to Juneau Daily News, Alaska's ballots "are under seal and won't be open until they are delivered to the president of the U. S. Senate" but "there's no indication" that Mrs Miller voted for Ron Paul.

Yesterday's joint session of Congress revealed there were no faithless electors.

Indeed, 332-206 for President and Vice President. There may be a lot of talk, but certainly no action.

Ron Paul's ninja brigade was about as effective as Karl Rove's attack ads.
