Indiana's 11 presidential electors will cast their votes for president and vice president Monday morning at the Statehouse. Secretary of State Connie Lawson will preside over the meeting.

Since Indiana has nine U.S. Representatives and two U.S. Senators the state gets a total of 11 electors. The presidential electors in Indiana, which are selected at state party conventions prior to the election, have pledged to support their party's candidate. Indiana has never had a "faithless" elector. The Secretary of State's website says "the presidential electors for the presidential and vice-presidential candidates who receive the most votes in Indiana are then certified as the official presidential electors for the state."

Electors will vote for president and vice president separately on paper ballots. The signed and certified votes will be sent to Vice President Joe Biden and they are then counted with the votes from the 49 other states during a joint session of the U.S.Senate and House on January 6. Indiana presidential electors have voted for the winning candidate in 37 of 50 presidential elections. The Republican ticket of Donald Trump and Governor Mike Pence won in Indiana last month.

Indiana's Republican presidential electors this year are:

  • Stephanie Beckley of Jamestown
  • Daniel Bortner of Bedford
  • Laura Campbell of Carmel
  • Jeff Cardwell of Indianapolis
  • Donald L. Hayes of Jasper
  • Randall Kirkpatrick of Ligonier
  • Ethan E. Manning of Macy
  • Kelly Mitchell Indianapolis
  • Edwin J. Simcox of Fishers
  • Kevin Steen of Muncie
  • Chuck Williams of Valparaiso

You can connect to more information about the process from the Indiana Secretary of State's website. The vote is scheduled for Monday at 10 a.m. You can connect to a live stream of the meeting by clicking here.
