BOSTON — Chico native Wayne Yeh was one of 11 state electors to cast a vote in the Massachusetts Electoral College on Monday at the Massachusetts State House, a process he was inspired to take part in beginning several years ago.
Yeh and fellow Massachusetts electors cast their votes for Joe Biden as president and Kamala Harris as vice president, which will be now sent to Congress to be formally counted.
That led him running to be a member of the electoral college representing Massachusetts.
“But given the direction of the country, and really needing to have younger people be more engaged and take ownership over this, I really wanted to get involved myself.
In addition to the aforementioned groups he represented, Wayne Yeh said he also thought of his Chico roots during Monday’s electoral college proceedings.
