President-elect Joe Biden has been confirmed by the electoral college after winning 306 votes to Trump’s 232 in yesterday’s official electoral college count.
Tennessee electors met at 10 a.m. Monday morning to formally cast their electoral college votes, with the state’s 11 electoral college votes going to President Donald Trump.
These 11 votes reflect the 1,852,475 Tennessee voters (or a 60.7 percent majority) who cast their ballot for the incumbent in the presidential election.
Tennessee's votes were 11 of the 232 electors that cast their votes for President Donald Trump, while former Vice President Joe Biden earned 306.
These results were sent with the other 49 states’ results Monday evening to Washington, where they will be tallied in the January 6 session of Congress, led by Vice President Mike Pence.
In a speech after the Electoral College affirmed Biden's victory, the former vice president emphasized the rights of all Americans "to have (their) vote counted."
"In America, politicians don't take power," he said. "People grant power to them. The flame of democracy was lit in this nation a long time ago. And we now know nothing, not even a pandemic or an abuse of power, can extinguish that flame."
