Joe Biden won the 2020 U.S. Presidential election.

The U.S. Congress formally confirmed Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election, and he is scheduled to be sworn in as the President on Jan. 20.

The U.S. Congress formally confirmed Joe Biden's victory in the presidential election, and he is scheduled to be sworn in as the President on Jan. 20.The 2020 U.S. Presidential election took place on Nov. 3, 2020. Biden secured 306 electoral college votes, winning the previously Republican states of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Trump secured only 232 votes and refused to concede he had lost.

On Dec. 14, 2020, the Electoral College officially voted to make Biden the 46th president of the U.S., formalizing his November victory under the constitutional procedure. The Democratic electors cast their votes even in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, where Trump had contested the results. The votes were rolled out throughout the day, with electors gathering in all fifty state capitals and Washington, D.C. The states held brief ceremonies and recorded all of their votes for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

On Jan. 7, Congress officially confirmed President-elect Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential elections. It happened despite President Trump making repeated, baseless allegations about voter fraud, a mob of Trump supporters storming the Capitol Building the day prior, and Republican representatives opposing the election outcome.

Since the U.S. presidential elections of 2020, Republicans, including Trump himself, have made multiple electoral fraud allegations. These allegations are baseless. There has been no evidence pointing out voter fraud.

Six Republican senators opposed the certification of President-elect Biden. Though many Republican senators who had said they would oppose the results ultimately changed their minds. The New York Times lists senators Josh Hawley, Ted Cruz, Tommy Tuberville, Roger Marshall, John Kennedy, and Cindy Hyde-Smith as among those who voted against the election results.

Democrat Joe Biden's victory was confirmed at about 03:30 local time (08:30 GMT) in the joint session presided over by Republican Vice-President Mike Pence. The democrat victors are to be sworn in as the President and Vice President of the U.S. on Jan. 20, 2021.
