Colorado’s Electoral College electors make Joe Biden, Kamala Harris win official

Nine Colorado Democrats gathered in the west foyer of the state Capitol at high noon Monday to put the final stamp on Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’ Nov. 3 victory, as the Electoral College cast a closely watched vote amid ongoing resistance to an election President Trump has yet to concede.

The electors, chosen earlier this year at a Democratic Party assembly, sat wearing masks at folding tables and checked off boxes on separate ballots for Biden and Harris before state election director, Judd Choate, announced the results.

“Colorado casts its nine electoral votes for Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris to be president and vice president of the United States,” Choate said, as the room broke out in applause.

“Pretty awesome,” is how Denverite Nita Lynch described her first Electoral College experience. “It’s an honor.”
