The electors in Minnesota have cast their 10 votes for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris for this election year electoral college during their meeting in St. Paul on Monday 12th December, 2020.
Biden won Minnesota by 52% to 45% over Trump on about 7 percentage points.
Richard Nixon in 1972 was the last Republican to carry Minnesota in a presidential election was. Apart from Washington, DC, Minnesota remains the longest Democratic streak of any state in the nation.
Trump lost to Biden with a higher vote margin than he did to Hillary Clinton in 2016.
The meeting of electors is one of the major steps in the Electoral College process to affirm the general election results, which has been heavily condemned by Trump as fraudulent.
By law, state electors are required to vote for president and vice president on the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December of the election year. The election is conducted in November every 4 years, and it takes 270 electoral votes of the 538 available to become a US president.
