IDCCA President votes to give 20 Electoral College votes to Biden / Harris

SPRINGFIELD, IL – Electors from throughout Illinois met at the Illinois State Capitol this morning to cast their historic vote for the 2020 Electoral College. Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association (IDCCA) President Kristina Zahorik was among the 20 Electors that voted to award President Elect Joe Biden & Vice President Elect Kamala Harris all 20 of Illinois’ Electoral College vote. With Illinois’ 20 Electoral College votes, President Elect Biden & Vice President Elect Harris have secured enough Electoral College votes to officially be declared the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election. President Zahorik released the following statement:

“Today’s vote should put an end to the drama that has unfolded throughout our country since November 3rd. President Elect Joe Biden & Vice President Elect Kamala Harris have officially been elected. No last second lawsuits, no baseless allegations, no Twitter posts will change the fact that Joe Biden received more votes for President than any other candidate in history. Americans have sent a message that we need to return to decency and work to build back our country after the abysmal last four years.”

“As I cast my vote this morning, I was struck by the historic nature of this election. For the first time in our nation’s history and the year of the 100th year anniversary of women getting the right to vote, a woman has just been elected to the second highest office in the land. I am honored & humbled to take part in such a momentous occasion.”
