"I believe we should abolish the Electoral College and select our president by the winner of the popular vote, same as every other office," Clinton said in a tweet, along with a picture of her in a mask giving a thumbs up after casting her vote at the state Capitol. "But while it still exists, I was proud to cast my vote in New York for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris."

Hillary Clinton first announced she was an elector in October, saying it was "pretty exciting" to have the opportunity to cast an electoral vote for Biden and Harris. 

All 538 electors met in state legislatures across the country on Monday to formally cast their ballots for president. The meetings will further solidify Biden's presidential victory even as Trump continues to claim, without evidence, he only lost due to widespread voter fraud.
