4 Washington electors to be fined $1,000 for not voting for Clinton


OLYMPIA – Washington’s four “faithless” electors face a $1,000 fine each for not voting for Hillary Clinton when the Electoral College met Monday, state elections officials said.

Three voted for retired Gen. Colin Powell and one voted for Native American activist Faith Spotted Eagle.

Washington has a law that requires electors, who are chosen by the state’s political parties, to cast their Electoral College ballots for the person who wins the state’s popular vote. Failure to do so can result in a fine as high as $1,000.
