How can I find out who the members of the electoral college are in California?
or other states too, how much they make and what the requirements are to be one and how they get that position.
PS - i've been googling for months with no luck.
I don't really care about the new guys coming in in October or Nov. I just want to know who they are NOW :) names please! of all of them. is that too much to ask? I can't find one anywhere.

CALIFORNIA – 55 electoral votes cast by the following Electors (in alphabetical order, by last name):
Franklin A. Acevedo
Joe Baca Jr.
James G. Bohm
James T. Ewing
Douglas E. Hitchcock
C. Paul Johnson
N. Mark Lam
Donald Linker M.D.
Robert H. Manley
Lane M. Sherman
Andrew M. Siegel
Lynda Von Husen
These Electors were chosen by Congressional Representatives and US Senators, and are (were) not compensated for their endeavors. I had originally just copy/pasted the same info RetroRay pulled from the government web site. But then your updated/clarified question made the above data seem more relevant to your search. Hope this works for you!
Cupcake: If you would like phone numbers and addresses, or satellite imagery of residences, please let me know! ;o)

Sounds like you have a couple of good answers. If your not satisfied with them, you might try looking for the Secretary of State for California, and /or the Board of Elections... No promises, but it might be another approach to try... especially if you are Googling...!!!

California (from the website of the California Secretary of State):
"On or before October 1 of the presidential election year, each party's nominee must file a list containing the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of the 55 electors pledged to him/her. Each party determines its own method for selecting electors.
In the Democratic Party, each congressional nominee and each US Senate nominee (determined by the last two elections) designates one elector.
In the Republican Party, the nominees for governor, lieutenant governor, treasurer, controller, attorney general, secretary of state, United States Senators (again, going back two elections) the Senate and Assembly GOP leaders, all elected officers of the GOP state central committee, the national committeeman and committeewoman, the president of the GOP county central committee chairmen's organization and the chair or president of each GOP volunteer organization officially recognized by the state central committee act as electors.
American Independent party electors are selected at the party's nominating convention."
The Green, Libertarian, Natural Law, and Peace & Freedom parties also select their respective electors at each party's nominating convention; these parties also specify a 50/50 ratio of men and women.
No incumbent Senators, congressional representatives or persons holding an office of trust or profit of the United States can serve as electors.
Electors are not paid to act as electors.
