At 11 a.m. today, I’ll attend the first meeting of the Minnesota electors (the main Electoral College ceremony being tomorrow at noon). I’ll be updating live on Twitter; follow me there.
The notice for today reads:
Pursuant to Minnesota Statutes Chapter 208, on Sunday, December 14, 2008, at 11 a.m., a meeting will be convened of the presidential electors and alternate presidential electors. The meeting will take place in the Governor’s Reception Room at the State Capitol, Room 130, 75 Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, Minnesota. At that time, the Governor or his agent will deliver to the electors present a certificate of the names of all the electors. The above meeting is prescribed by statute. It is not the meeting at which the electors vote or which vacancies are declared or filled. The electors and alternates need not appear at this meeting in order to participate in the meetings on Monday, December 15, 2008.
The Capitol isn’t very far from here, but the forecast is “Rain and freezing rain early will changeover to snow for the afternoon.” So I should get moving!
I’ll post more later. Meanwhile, you can follow me on Twitter.
