The six Kansas electors cast their votes in Topeka today (Monday). Secretary of State Kris Kobach presided over the quick meeting, which lasted less than 20 minutes.
The tally brought a mix of cheers and boos. Some shouted “shame” from the unusually full state Senate gallery. Kobach said when he was an elector in 2008 the gallery was empty. The vote itself was not a surprise. All the electors are Kansas GOP insiders, including the state treasurer, state party chair, and national party committeeman. A certificate of the results will be mailed to Congress, which will count all the electoral votes from around the country on January 6.
