to go the way their state votes?

Stupid question, I know. I honestly have no idea what the answer to it is though. Any help would be greatly welcomed.

Historically, representatives have followed the lead of the popular vote from their state to cast their electoral vote for the person chosen. A few state have state laws that mandate representatives follow the popular vote given by the people.

The state without these laws, could realistically have their electoral votes given to other candidates. This would be political suicide for all parties involved.

I think that in theory that the electoral college could go against the state vote, but I don't think that they have in a very long time.
