The complicated process of the Electoral College

President Trump No Concede
In short, US citizens vote for electors and the electors vote for the President. Then, the winner is declared…

Nov. 3, 2020
US citizens voted nationally.  The final tally of voters’ in-person, mail-in and provisional ballots is being concluded, even with Biden passing the 270 threshold.  

Next, all 50 governors prepare their state’s “Certificate of Ascertainment”, listing their local electors, which is then submitted to the U.S. Archivist.  

Dec. 14, 2020
Each state’s Electoral College electors meet in D.C. – to formally cast their votes for president and vice president which are then sent by registered mail to the President of the U.S. Senate and the Archivist of the USA. This should now be a conclusive win for Biden / Harris. 

Jan. 6, 2021
Congress convenes to count the electoral votes and certify the winner of the election. The Vice President (Pence) also serves as President of the Senate, will preside over the count in 2021 and he will formally certify the winner:

From this moment forward, the winner becomes “President Elect ____” 

Jan 20, 2021
The Chief Judge of the Supreme Court swears in the new President at precisely 12:00pm noon.
The previous President at that moment becomes a private citizen again.

inauguration trump not conceding

As I predicted a few days ago, Biden got the electoral college votes, and now I anticipate we will have about 50 days of utter chaos, reckless stupidity and ill-founded lawsuits, until certification of the vote, and, if required, the secret service will evict him at 12:01pm on Jan 20.

I expect on January 6, we can hear Mike Pence say, “President Elect Biden”.

Actors Equity calls Biden “the most consequential president for the arts industry in a generation”. Today, it’s such fabulous news for Broadway and the world. Jan 6 will come quickly. Jan 20 will come even sooner. Then the road to recovery, but this time, with global support.  Once basic science prevails in the strategy against COVID-19, Broadway will be be able to re-bound.
