Arizona Electoral College Votes Confirm Biden Win

AP, file

Arizona’s 11 Electoral College members have cast their votes for Democrat Joe Biden and running mate Kamala Harris.

Monday's vote follows state law requiring delegates from the party whose candidates received the most votes to back the winning presidential candidate. Biden won the Nov. 3 election in Arizona by nearly 10,500 votes and was the first Democrat since President Bill Clinton in 1996 to carry the traditionally Republican state.

The vote came as some Arizona Republicans continue to question Biden’s victory over President Donald Trump. The meeting of the Electoral College was held away from the Capitol because of concerns about protesters.
