As electors and alternates gathered, some brought their children to help them learn about the process. Others said school classes were watching the process online. Once they signed all documents Gov. Stitt signed them and they copies are filed in various locations to confirm Oklahoma's electoral votes.
"As governor of the state of Oklahoma, I certify and confirm that all seven electoral votes in Oklahoma will be cast for President Trump and Vice President Pence," Stitt said as the meeting closed.
When asked by a reporter Stitt did say he acknowledged former Vice President Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election.
