The Electoral College officially voted today to make Joe Biden the 46th president of the United States, formalizing his victory under constitutional procedure and dashing President Trump’s longshot hopes of reversing the 2020 election results.

The votes rolled in throughout the day, with electors gathering in all 50 state capitals and Washington, D.C., for incident-free ceremonies in line with the vote totals in those states, after legal challenges and attempts to delegitimize the election from Trump and his supporters.

After today’s vote, the last step in the presidential election process is a Jan. 6 meeting of Congress to count and certify the electoral votes.

Trump’s allies in the House are promising to inject some drama into that process by challenging Biden’s win in Congress, but it will likely amount to a filibuster, forcing a daylong debate that delays certification by a matter of hours.
