"Presidential electors play an important role in our democracy and are enabled by our constitution to make an independent judgement", said Bartlett in a written statement to the Bangor Daily News.
Trump has frequently said that he won the election by a landslide, which Clinton also commented on.
Clinton won California by 4.2 million and took NY by more than 1.6 million. More than 100 were at the capitol in Jefferson City.

Trump is looking at a smooth road to the inauguration now that only two of the electors defected from the president elect.
A joint session of Congress is scheduled for January 6 to certify the results of the Electoral College. Trump's individual targets have ranged from Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, whose questions during a presidential debate angered Trump, to the leader of an IN steelworkers union who disputed the number of jobs saved by a Trump deal IN that state.
