TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The six Republican members of the Electoral College in Kansas feel obligated to follow their state’s popular vote for Donald Trump in the presidential race.

They also defend the college as a much-needed institution for ensuring that most of the U.S. isn’t ignored.

All of them reported receiving thousands of emails urging them not to vote for Trump.

They said most emails were from outside Kansas. Some wanted them to pick another Republican, but most called on them to back Democrat Hillary Clinton as the winner of the popular vote nationwide.

They’re expecting their meeting at noon Monday in the Kansas Senate chamber to be short, despite the national attention on the Electoral College and the campaign against Trump.

The president-elect received nearly 57 percent of the vote in Kansas.
