ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York’s 29 presidential electors awarded their votes to Joe Biden and running mate Kamala Harris Monday.

The vote took place in the state Capitol in the state Assembly chamber.

Electors included former President Bill Clinton and former New York U.S. Sen. and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who were the first two to cast their votes.

The vote took about half an hour and finished without any surprises.

Electors sat in separate rows behind invisible plastic dividers. All wore masks as they sat and cast their votes one by one.
