Following the 2020 United States elections and the crises that followed, the United States Congress had officially announced Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the winner of the election.
This was made known earlier today, Thursday, 7th January 2021, when the Congress finished counting the Electoral College votes and confirmed President-elect Joe Biden’s win. It was after a chaotic day that resulted in four deaths and forced lawmakers to evacuate the Capitol.
Despite the disruption and objections from Republicans to election results in Arizona and Pennsylvania, members of the House and the Senate were able to certify the Electoral College more than 14 hours after the process began.
Biden, who led with 306 college votes, is scheduled to be inaugurated as the 46th president on Jan. 20.
