PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island’s four presidential electors are set to formally cast their ballots, bringing the 2012 campaign for the White House to a ceremonial end.
Monday’s meeting of the electors will occur at noon in the House of Representatives chamber in the Statehouse.
The four electors will be escorted into the event by a group of colonial militia re-enactors. Gov. Lincoln Chafee (CHAY'-fee) and members of the state’s Congressional delegation are expected to attend.
The four electors are selected by the state’s Democratic Party.
President Barack Obama won 63 percent of the vote in Rhode Island, easily securing the state’s four electoral votes.
