Wisconsin's Electoral College votes to be cast

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's 10 Electoral College votes are about to be cast for President Barack Obama.

The state's 10 electors, along with electors in every other state, were meeting Monday as required by the U.S. Constitution.

Obama carried Wisconsin by 7 points in the November election on his way to victory over Republican Mitt Romney.

Wisconsin's 10 electors include representatives from each of the eight congressional districts and two statewide electors. They include state Sen. Fred Risser of Madison, state Rep. Peter Barca of Kenosha and Mahlon Mitchell, the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor in this spring's recall election of Gov. Scott Walker.

Nationwide, Obama won 332 electoral votes to 206 for Romney.
