(AP) — California's Electoral College has unanimously requested an independent investigation into the November election.

All 55 electors voted Monday to approve a motion by elector Christine Pelosi asking for an independent, bipartisan investigation into "Russian interference into our election and steps we can take to protect the integrity of our democracy going forward."

Pelosi says it's important that Congress conduct a thorough investigation and that information is declassified so everyone understands the facts and the country can improve its cybersecurity.

Pelosi is the daughter of California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat and leader of the House minority.

California's electors backed Hillary Clinton, the winner of the state's popular vote.
