77 Representatives, 13 Senators Pledge to Object to Electoral Votes

77 Representatives, 13 Senators Pledge to Object to Electoral Votes

Ninety Republicans have committed to objecting to electoral votes during the joint session of Congress on Jan. 6, according to an Epoch Times tally.

That includes 13 senators.

Congress is convening in Washington to count ballots sent by state electors, under the Electoral College system. The vote counting determines who is president-elect.

President Donald Trump ran for a second term against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Objections must be in writing and have the support of at least one senator and one representative. An objection triggers a withdrawal from the joint session and a two-hour debate, followed by a vote. A majority vote in each chamber votes upholds an objection, which would nullify the contested electoral votes.

See the full list of planned objectors below. This list will be updated if others commit.
