I am assuming that "the executive of the State" is the governor of that state. If a Democratic governor "certifies" that the Democrat gets the electoral votes, then the Democrat gets them.
Aren't the electors certified before the vote? I believe that this clause is saying that if the two chambers can't agree, then the votes of the original, certified electors are used.
