More Democratic electors are defecting than Republicans in the Electoral College vote so far.
Four Democratic electors in Washington state cast votes for candidates other than Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who carried the state.
In Hawaii, three votes went to Clinton, while one elector voted for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Democratic electors in Maine, Minnesota and Colorado separately tried to cast votes for different candidates, but saw their ballots barred. Clinton carried all three states.
Ahead of the Electoral College vote, the focus was on whether any voters would defect from casting ballots for Republican Donald Trump.
That didn’t happen. But two Republican electors in Texas chose alternatives to Trump. One, who had said weeks earlier he would switch is vote, chose Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich. The other chose former Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul.
Trump sealed his victory Monday evening when Texas’ 36 electoral votes pushed him over the edge of 270 with 304 votes.
Who could have guessed that a small handful of Democrats have principles?
