By casting their electoral votes, California’s electors pushed Joe Biden’s tally to 302 — well above the 270 needed to win.
The final four electoral votes will be cast for Biden later tonight by Hawaii’s electors. Congress will meet on January 6 in a joint session to formally accept the results. The interactive electoral map shows the final tally.
“I believe we should abolish the Electoral College and select our president by the winner of the popular vote, same as every other office. But while it still exists, I was proud to cast my vote in New York for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.”
— Hillary Clinton, on Twitter.
“I can’t fathom risking our norms, traditions and institutions to pass a resolution retroactively changing the electors for Trump, simply because some think there may have been enough widespread fraud to give him the win …. I fear we’d lose our country forever.”
— Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield (R), quoted by Fox 17.
His loss Trump still refuses to acknowledge,
And meanwhile democracy’s held hostage.
But it all ends today
When electors of faith
Cast their votes in the Electoral College.
