Electoral College Makes Joe Biden’s Presidential Win Official
It's really over. Yet again.

All six states where President Donald Trump and his supporters sought to undo the victories there of President-elect Joe Biden formally codified the Democrat's win by Monday afternoon, with their Electoral College members casting their ballots for Biden. California put Biden over the 270 Electoral College vote threshold in late afternoon.

In another defeat for Trump, who already has lost more than 50 court cases, including one on Monday in battleground Wisconsin seeking to throw out Biden votes and overturn the election. The Electoral College votes, normally a barely noted procedural process after the November presidential elections, sealed Trump's losing fate.


... "In this battle for the soul of America, democracy prevailed. We the people voted. Faith in our institutions held. The integrity of our elections remains intact," Biden was set to say, according to excerpts of his speech released by the transition.

"And so, now it is time to turn the page – to unite, to heal. As I said through this campaign, I will be a president for all Americans. I will work just as hard for those of you who didn't vote for me as I will for those who did," Biden was set to say, calling for a united effort to get the pandemic under control and for bolstering the economy.
