COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Members of the revered and reviled Electoral College have formalized the presidential election results in Ohio in a vote that delivers the battleground state's 18 electoral votes to Democratic incumbent Barack Obama.

The electors convened Monday at the Statehouse for the formal process. Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor kicked things off with a swearing-in ceremony in the chambers of the Ohio Senate.

Obama beat Republican nominee Mitt Romney 50 percent to 47 percent in the state after the months of intensive campaigning.
