Sen. Lee Notes Electoral College Certification

December 14, 2020

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Monday after presidential electors met and cast votes in their respective states.

“Our election process took a major step today when presidential electors met in their respective states and cast 306 electoral votes for former Vice President Joe Biden—more than the 270 electoral votes he needs to become president-elect. Concerns regarding fraud and irregularities in this election remain active in multiple states, and those concerns need to be addressed by Congress and state and local officials throughout the country. But absent new information that could give rise to a judicial or legislative determination altering the impact of today’s electoral-college votes, Joe Biden will become president of the United States on January 20, 2021.”
