Presidential electors are meeting across the United States to formally choose Joe Biden as the nation’s next president.
Today is the day set by law for the meeting of the Electoral College. In reality, electors meet in all 50 states and the District of Columbia to cast their ballots.
The results will be sent to Washington and counted in a 6th January joint session of Congress over which Vice President Mike Pence will preside.
The electors’ votes have drawn more attention than usual this year because President Donald Trump has refused to concede the election.
Biden is planning to address the nation tonight, after the electors have voted.
