While Donald Trump won the majority of electoral votes in the general election, there has been buzz ever since that some electors may go off in their own direction and vote for someone else. Should Trump not end up with the required 270 electoral votes needed to become President, the House of Representatives would choose the President from the three top electoral vote-getters (or two if all the votes are split between Trump and Hillary Clinton).

Here at, we’ll be keeping track of the votes in each state, with updates as the results come in. Results by state can be found below the updates.
