BOISE -- Idaho's presidential vote just became official today as members of the Electoral College cast their ballots.

The Gem State has four of the 538 electoral votes for president.

The electors met at Gov. Butch Otter's ceremonial office at noon. Then, Travis Hawkes, Teresa Luna, Jason Risch and Damond Watkins cast their votes.

"Would you announce the results governor?" said Secretary of State Ben Ysursa.

"The results are 100 percent Mitt Romney," said Gov. Otter.

"To the surprise of nobody. Let the record reflect that four votes, Idaho's four presidential electors cast their four votes for Mitt Romney for president," said Ysursa.

Romney won more than 64 percent of the popular vote in Idaho.
