North Carolina’s presidential electors are gearing up to cast their final votes in the Electoral College.  Several groups, including Unite America, are calling on electors to change their votes after President elect Donald Trump won North Carolina.

Before the start of a Sunday afternoon press conference, a spokesman for the state Republican Party made it very clear that there would be no mystery in the outcome Monday. Although there will be 15 votes for Trump that didn’t stop protesters from gathering to urge electors to change their mind.

For protesters outside the Capital Building Sunday night, the election of Trump is not the will of all the people. They join others across the country who, until the very last vote is cast, will continue to urge electors not to vote for Trump.

On Sunday afternoon, the state’s presidential electors arrived at the North Carolina Museum of History to take a group photo and answer some questions before casting their votes on Monday at noon.  In the state of North Carolina, any elector who switches a vote is subject to a $500 fine.

State law also says switching a vote constitutes a resignation and the vote would not count and remaining electors would fill the vacancy.  North Carolina’s electors claim they’ve received tubs full of mail as well as emails from people asking that they change their votes, however they said not to expect any such controversy.
