There are 11 Cardinal Electors: Baum, William Wakefield Egan, Edward Michael George, Francis Eugene Keeler, William Henry Law, Bernard Francis McCarrick, Theodore Edward Mahony, Roger Michael Maida, Adam Joseph Rigali, Justin Francis Stafford, James Francis Szoka, Edmund Casimir

It is likely that other American Cardinals (Bevilacqua and Dulles) who are not eligible to vote, will attend also.
