New York’s most powerful Democrats, including Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton, will likely descend on the state capitol in Albany next week to participate in the state’s Electoral College vote, handing the state’s 29 electoral votes for former Vice President Joe Biden.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who’s also one of the state’s electors, said Tuesday that state law will likely prevent the vote from being conducted virtually.
“We don’t believe, legally, you can do it virtually,” Cuomo said. “They’re going to have to come assemble in the capitol.”
