State Electoral Vote Concludes US Presidential Election Procedure

The day before the US Electoral College (Electoral College) meets to formally declare Joe Biden the country’s new president, Donald Trump continues to deny the results of the November 3 election..

Thousands of Trump supporters gathered in Washington the day before to support the president’s failed efforts to renegotiate his defeat at the polls.

As a reminder, the U.S. presidential election is not over until constitutionally mandated electors from all 50 states vote..

The number of electors per state depends on its population of the state and on the number of legislators it sends to Congress..

Electors from each state (excluding two states in a country) vote according to how their state’s population voted.

Biden has 306 electoral votes – 36 more votes than necessary – compared with 232 Trump’s votes, based on all-state certification. Biden will be declared the winner.

Federal and state courts have previously rejected dozens of lawsuits filed by Trump and his allies in swing states where Biden won – by varying margins – to review or annul the vote..

Last Friday, the Supreme Court refused to consider a lawsuit by the state of Texas, which called for the invalidation of election results in four states..

Trump, however, made it clear that he has not changed his position. “We’ve just started the fight,” he tweeted..

“I won the election by (getting) an overwhelming majority of votes,” he later added..

Trump made these statements as thousands of his supporters gathered in Washington, DC, urging the president to remain in office. Similar speeches took place in several states, where Trump’s legal team tried unsuccessfully to challenge Biden’s victory..

Sporadic clashes have occurred between Trump supporters and opponents. Four people were hospitalized and twenty-three were arrested, according to the Washington City Police Department..
