NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — Tennessee’s 11 representatives to the Electoral College on Monday cast their vote for President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. 

Monday was the day set by law for the meeting of the Electoral College, where all 50 states’ electors and the District of Columbia cast their ballots.

The results will be sent to Washington and tallied in a Jan. 6 joint session of Congress over which Vice President Mike Pence will preside.

Trump won Tennessee by more than 60% in the November presidential election against Democrat Joe Biden.

After the November election, Republican Gov. Bill Lee continued to decline to acknowledge Biden as president-elect.

This past week all six Republican members of Tennessee's congressional delegation signed a letter supporting a Texas appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. That appeal asked the high court overturn election results favoring Biden in four, key, swing-states.
