The Electoral College met last month and formally cast their votes for the president of the United States. Washington State elector, Brett Chiafalo, co-founded the Hamilton Electors, a movement aimed to block president elect Donald Trump’s presidency by encouraging electors to vote for a Republican alternate for President.

Here’s KBCS’s Yuko Kodama speaking with Chiafalo and another Washington elector, Esther John, as they reflect on the role of the Electoral College.
