Another official move in America's sometimes-convoluted presidential election process takes place Monday as the electors of the Electoral College cast their votes.
It's one of the final steps in picking a president, but who are these electors and how do they get selected?
It begins and ends with loyalty — loyalty to state and national parties. That in part is how the candidates are all but guaranteed to have the electors' votes match the ballots cast by regular people in general election voting in each state.
On Monday, 538 electors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia will cast their votes for president, marking a key next step for Joe Biden as he gets closer to officially becoming the 46th president of the United States.
