Denver (AP) Colorado is preparing to cast the only presidential votes that will be counted by Congress.

Nine Democratic members of the electoral college meet in Denver Monday for a ceremony awarding the state's electoral voted to President-elect Barack Obama.

Obama is the first democrat to carry Colorado since 1992, and only the third in the last six decades. The electoral college is a formality.

Colorado law requires the electors to choose the winner of the state's popular presidential vote, and Obama will be the only name on their ballots Monday.
