President Donald Trump and President-Elect Joe Biden.

President-Elect Joe Biden won both the electoral college vote and the popular vote, but President Donald Trump’s attorneys and others have been contesting the election and filing lawsuits over the results. On December 14, the members of each state’s electoral college will cast their votes for President. Who are the members of the electoral college? A list of electors’ names is below.

Electors typically vote for the person who won the popular vote in their state, but not always. In some states, electors can vote for anyone they wish, even if the person is not Trump or Biden. Some states, however, use laws or pledges to bind their electors to vote for a specific candidate. In fact, 33 states and D.C. have rules requiring electors to vote for their pledge, but about half don’t enforce these, FairVote reported.

There are 538 electors. To be chosen as an elector, you must not be a federal Senator or Representative or hold any “office of trust or profit” in the United States. You also can’t serve as an elector if you gave comfort to an enemy or engaged in rebellion against the United States (this is a Civil War era requirement.) The name of the electors who will be casting their vote in each state are publicly available from sources like Wikipedia and the National Archives’ Electoral College page. The National Archives includes the certification from each state that officially lists the names.

The electors’ names that are currently available are listed below. These electors are either from the Democrat or Republican slate, depending on which candidate won in their state’s popular vote.
