Colorado electoral college to ratify election

DENVER (AP) - Colorado's nine electoral college voters are gathering at the state Capitol to ratify the results of the state's presidential race.

They are being joined by Gov. John Hickenlooper, Secretary of State Scott Gessler and Colorado Supreme Court Justice Michael Bender to make sure the process goes smoothly on Monday.

When voters cast their votes in November, they were actually voting for the slate of electors that were chosen to represent that ticket in the Electoral College. Colorado voted overwhelmingly for President Barack Obama.

Colorado is entitled to nine electors because it has two members of the U.S. Senate and seven members of the U.S. House of Representatives.
