Louisiana Casts its 8 Electoral Votes for President Trump
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana’s eight electors have cast their ballots for President Donald Trump.
The ceremony Monday officially awarded the state’s Electoral College votes to the Republican who won Louisiana with 58% support but who lost his reelection bid. Electors met in the Louisiana Senate chamber for under an hour. They stood individually to announce their votes and signed paperwork to confirm it. They followed that with a resolution commending Trump for his time in office. Some electors didn’t wear masks for the event.
Louisiana’s potential electors are chosen by political parties from each of its six congressional districts and for two at-large positions which represent the state's U.S. senators.
