Electors from around the country will gather on Monday to cast their votes for president in one of the final acts of the 2016 presidential election.
While the Electoral College may not be the most popular American institution at the moment, it's one of the last constitutionally required steps to send President-elect Trump to the White House. But, it's not the last step.
After electors cast their votes for president and vice president, the results will be printed on a "certificate of vote," which is then mailed or delivered to the National Archives, according to the New York Times. The certificate is also sent to Congress.
At least one elector in Texas has said he will not follow his state's vote and will vote against Trump, but a rash of faithless electors is not expected. The Federal Register states 99 percent of electors have cast their vote according to how their state voted in the election.
