Arizona Electoral College electors question Obama birth certificate

College member Don Ascoli, a former Republican Party chairman in Gila County, said he didn't think Obama was "properly vetted as a legitimate candidate for president."

The White House has released the president's long-form birth certificate, and officials in Hawaii have affirmed that records show the president having been born there.

While Arizona's 11 electors — including the three "birthers" — all went to Mitt Romney, President Obama is expected to earn 332 electoral votes to Romney's 206. A candidate needs 270 votes to prevail.

After the votes are completed, the ballots will be sent to Vice President Biden, who will read them to both houses of Congress on Jan. 6. Congress will then vote to certify the electoral results. President Obama and Biden will be inaugurated on Jan. 20.
