Presidential Election Results Certification

This isn’t a popularity contest™

Electoral College Timeline >>

States that have certified their 2020 presidential election results are shown as dark red/blue. Others are shown lighter red/blue based on the projected winner.  

Each state compiles its certified results on a Certificate of Ascertainment (example). These name the electors to be sent to the electoral college and also include the vote earned by each candidate and/or party and their corresponding slate of electors. 

Electoral college delegations meet to cast their vote in each state on December 14. The result is recorded on a Certificate of Vote (example). These are then counted in Congress on January 6. 

December 8: Hawaii (D), Missouri (R). All 50 states and DC have certified their results. The electors will meet in each state on Monday December 14 to cast their votes.
