Electors began voting across the United States on Monday (December 14) to choose Joe Biden formally as the next U.S. president, and effectively ending President Donald Trump's failing attempt to overturn his loss in the November 3 election.
The state-by-state Electoral College votes, traditionally an afterthought, have taken on outsized significance because of Trump's assault on the democratic process. Pushing false claims of widespread fraud, Trump has pressured state officials to throw the election results out and declare him the winner.
Election results show Biden, the Democratic former vice president, won 306 electoral votes - exceeding the 270 needed to win - after four years under the Republican Trump. Biden and running mate Kamala Harris are due to take office on Jan. 20.
There was next to no chance that Monday's voting would have negated Biden's victory and, with Trump's legal campaign to reverse the results floundering, the president's hopes of clinging to power will rest with a special meeting of the U.S. Congress on Jan. 6 where the odds against him are as good as insurmountable.
Under a complicated system dating back to the 1780s, a candidate becomes U.S. president not by winning a majority of the popular vote but through the Electoral College system, which allots electoral votes to the 50 states and the District of Columbia largely based on the size of their population.
In capitols such as Lansing, Michigan; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; and Atlanta, Georgia, electors - typically party loyalists - gathered to cast those votes.
Electors in Georgia and Michigan each cast 16 votes for Biden, as did six electors in Nevada.
