Oregon and Californina cast 62 votes for Joe Biden in the Electoral College

Oregon and California cast Electoral College votes for Joe Biden, who won the election with 306 votes.

Posted: Dec 14, 2020 8:55 PM

Meeting on the Senate floor in the Oregon State Capitol, Oregon’s electors have given their seven votes to Joe Biden. Oregon Secretary of State Bev Clarno, a Republican, said before the vote that it came amid an incredibly difficult year, citing the coronavirus pandemic, catastrophic wildfires and racial injustice. She said on top of all that, the 2020 general election was rife with misinformation, leading to mistrust in America's democracy and division among its citizens. She did not name Trump, who has undermined public faith in America’s democracy by claiming, without any basis, that the election was rigged.

California electors cast the state’s 55 votes for President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, formally cementing the Democratic presidential ticket’s victory over President Donald Trump. Biden carried the heavily Democratic state in a landslide last month. The vote was taken in a mostly subdued ceremony in the ornate state Assembly chamber in Sacramento, where electors wore face masks and were socially distanced at separate desks for safety because of the coronavirus pandemic. When the vote for Biden was announced, electors stood and cheered. Pro-Trump protests have been staged in Sacramento since the election, but the fenced statehouse grounds were quiet Monday.

After the vote, President-elect Biden addressed the nation.
