Virginia Electors Cast Tallies For Obama, Biden

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia's 13 Electoral College members have cast their ballots for Democratic incumbent Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, formalizing the outcome of the presidential election in the state.
    
Electors of all 50 states and the District of Columbia convened Monday to cast their ballots. Officials say Virginia's electors met at the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond.
    
It's a constitutional formality that played out nationwide involves party luminaries and activists carrying out the will of their state's voters. The popular vote from state-to-state dictates whether Democratic and Republican electors get the honor.
    
A majority of the 538 electoral votes was required to become president.
    
Obama is on course to get 332 votes to Romney's 206, barring defectors. The ballots head to Washington, where Congress will count them on Jan. 6.
