Certificates of Ascertainment
Each Certificate of Ascertainment lists the:
- names of the Electors chosen by the voters and the number of votes received
- names of all other candidates for Elector and the number of votes received
The Governor of each State prepares seven original Certificates of Ascertainment listing the persons appointed as Electors as soon as possible after the November election. Each Certificate must be signed by the Governor and carry the seal of the State. But, Federal law does not govern the general appearance of the Certificate of Ascertainment. Click on the links below to view each state's Certificate of Ascertainment from the 2012 Presidential Election.
