Sanders did better in caucus states, where his enthusiastic supporters outnumbered Clinton backers - including in ME, where he defeated her by a almost 2-1 margin.
A presidential elector from ME announced Monday that he plans to cast his vote for Sen.
"The very least I can do is tell these new voters, 'look, somebody did listen to you".
Bright's vote means Clinton will lose one of the three electoral votes she was expected to receive after winning the statewide popular vote on Election Day.
Elector David Bright says he will be voting for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. "If I thought my vote could have helped Secretary Clinton to win the presidency, I would have voted for her on the first round".
"Maine also has a law that you're not supposed to go faster than 70 on the interstate", Bright explained. This is the first time ME has split its electoral votes.
Pakistan not to accept adjustment in Indus Waters Treaty

Sen. Bernie Sanders lost the Democratic nomination to Hillary Clinton, but he and his supporters will get a small reward today, according to one of four ME electoral college members. But Trump received one elector because he won more votes in the state's second congressional district. "I know you really wanted to see a vote for Bernie".
Around the country, the Electoral College is receiving more attention than at any time in recent history, due to the circumstances surrounding an election in which Clinton won the popular vote by 2.865 million and revelations since the election that both the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have determined Russian Federation was seeking to help Trump win. Bright is taking a risk by defecting from the Clinton collective and casting his ballot for an opponent under the auspices of maintaining party loyalty.
Maine's four electors are expected to convene on the floor of the Maine House of Representatives at 2 p.m. today to cast their ballots. "I can't do anything to change the results of the election this year".
The Electoral College Assembly was accorded a healthy dollop of Minnesota civic ceremony and pride, including honor guard, Pledge of Allegiance, "Star Spangled Banner", double invocation and boasting from Simon about Minnesotans' nation leading propensity to vote.
