Missouri electors meet at Capitol for presidential vote

Monday, December 17, 2012 | 9:51 a.m. CST

JEFFERSON CITY — The drama is long over, but Missouri's official vote for president is ready to be cast.

Ten people chosen by their fellow Republicans are gathering Monday at the Missouri Capitol to cast the state's Electoral College vote for president.

Because Republican Mitt Romney won the state's popular vote, the electoral voters are expected to follow suit. But there is nothing legally preventing them from voting for Democratic President Barack Obama.

Though Obama won re-election, Romney carried nearly 54 percent of Missouri's vote in the Nov. 6 election.

Missouri's 10 Electoral College voters include one person from each of the state's eight congressional districts and two people chosen at large.
