BOSTON — The Massachusetts Democratic Party has announced the election of its slate of six male and six female presidential electors, including Ayer resident Faye L. Morrison. These electors will represent Massachusetts in the official Electoral College vote held on Dec. 15.
“Each of these electors will play a special role in the election of Barack Obama as our next president,” said party chairman John Walsh. “All the priorities for the state that Gov. Deval Patrick has laid out — making education a priority, fixing our roads and bridges and creating the jobs of the future — will be easier to achieve under a Barack Obama administration.”
The Electoral College is a group of selected delegates chosen by each state that determine the next president of the United States of America. When a candidate wins the popular vote, those delegates become the state’s electoral delegates.
