All 538 electoral college voters will be in their respective state capitals Monday, December 19, to cast their official votes for Presidents and Vice President of the United States.

However many electors will be met by protesters asking  voters to pay attention to the popular vote rather than the electoral results on election night in November.

Since then Republican Electors say they've received thousands of emails from protesters asking them to cast their vote for Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump.

Democratic Elector and Moline Township Supervisor Don Johnston says although he plans to cast his vote for Clinton, he does not think protests will change the electoral results overall. He still believes in the Electoral College process.

" I think it's the wisest way, if you think back to the founders of the country. It was an ingenious method. I don't think all the votes are even counted yet which means if you went by popular vote entirely you probably still wouldn't know who the president and vice president are at this point so I think it's the fairest way.

Electoral votes are expected to come in between 9 am and 6 pm CST.
