Electoral College Affirms Biden Victory As Trump Continues Baseless Challenges

 

December 16, 2020

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and President-elect Joe Biden last week in Wilmington, Del. They were formally elected Monday by the Electoral College.

President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris received the needed majority of votes in the Electoral College on Monday in another step putting them closer toward taking the White House in January.

Following a presidential election year like no other in American history, the day included many unprecedented arrangements as electors met in state capitols - some locked down for fear of political violence - in convention centers and online to dole out the nation's 538 Electoral College votes.

California's 55 Electoral College votes pushed the ticket over the threshold of 270 needed to win. As later states voted, Biden ended with an expected 306 electoral votes. Congress is set to meet on Jan. 6 to count the votes. Biden and Harris are scheduled to take their oaths of office on Jan. 20.
