LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Arkansas' six Electoral College voters are scheduled to formally cast their ballots for Republican Mitt Romney.
The six Republicans who were chosen in July are to meet Monday at 10 a.m. in the old Arkansas Supreme Court chamber in the state Capitol.
With Romney winning about 61% of the vote in Arkansas - they will cast their ballots for the Republican. Democratic President Barack Obama won re-election by garnering 332 of the 538 electoral votes nationwide. Obama also won the popular vote by more than three million votes.
Arkansas' electors are state Republican Party Chairman Doyle Webb, state Rep. Jonathan Barnett of Siloam Springs, and Rita Hamilton of Bella Vista, Larry Bailey of Hot Springs, Robin Lundstrum of Elm Springs and Benny Speaks of Mountain Home.
