All 50 states and the District of Columbia have certified their presidential election results.
President-elect Joe Biden is projected to win 306 electoral college votes, way more than 270 needed to be elected president. Trump is projected to win 232.
This comes after Donald Trump, his allies and his attorneys filed dozens of lawsuits across the country in key battle ground states seeking to overturn the election results, they all failed.
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court denied their request to overturn Biden’s victory in Pennsylvania.
The Electoral College will meet on Monday, then their votes are later transmitted to officials and counted in a joint session of Congress on January 6, according to CNN.
This could prove to be another pressure point in the process that allies of Donald Trump are looking to exploit. So far, Rep. Mo Brooks from Alabama and Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis) have signalled that they may challenge the electoral vote in Congress.
CNN reports that some states have laws binding their electors to the winning candidate. Some states even have rules in place to punish rogue or ‘faithless electors’ if they voted for a candidate who did not win the popular vote in their state. The Supreme Court ruled that those laws punishing faithless electors are constitutional.
