      Electors in Texas gather to cast presidential ballots

      AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas electors will gather at the State Capitol to cast the state's 38 electoral votes for president and vice president.

      Texas has 38 electoral votes which Republican nominee Mitt Romney won easily during last month's election.

      The electors were chosen by the Republican Party according to its rules.

      They will meet Monday afternoon in the House Chamber for a meeting convened by new Texas Secretary of State John Sheen. Also in attendance will be Wallace Jefferson, chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court

      Despite Texas and its electoral votes going for Romney, President Barack Obama won re-election by a 332 to 206 Electoral College tally.
