INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s eleven representatives to the Electoral College will gather at the Statehouse on Monday to formally cast votes to make Donald Trump president.

Anti-Trump activists across the country have encouraged citizen electors to reject the Republican, who won a majority of Electoral College votes during the election, but lost the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

But in Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s home state, none designated as electors by Trump’s November victory is expected to buck the party.

Monday’s vote will be overseen by Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson.

The GOP is issuing tickets for the event. Members of the media will be present for the vote and the general public can watch from an observation area.
