NY Electoral College votes for Clinton

Electoral College Vote

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York's 29 members of the Electoral College have cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton, who won the state despite not winning the race for the presidency against Republican Donald Trump.

The electors gathered Monday in the state Senate chambers in the Albany Capitol.

Electors in attendance included Gov. Andrew Cuomo, former President Bill Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, all three Democrats.

The electors broke out in applause when the results were read.

Dozens of protesters gathered outside to voice their concerns about the president-elect and to urge electors in other states to cast their ballots for Clinton or another candidate, even if their states voted for Trump.
