‘It is over’: Congress Certifies Donald Trump’s Victory

All 538 electors met in their respective state capitals in December to cast their votes.  The vote count on Friday, January 6th made it official.  Vice President Joe Biden presided over the count in his role as president of the Senate. Donald Trump finished with 304 electoral votes and Democrat Hillary Clinton got 227. It takes 270 Electoral College votes to win the presidency. As expected, Mike Pence was elected Vice President. Trump and Pence are to be sworn at noon local time on January 20th, 2017 on the steps of the United States Capitol Building.
