Congress certifies Electoral College vote(38 images)

Members of the U.S. House and Senate met in a joint session on Wednesday to certify the Electoral College's votes to elect Democrat Joe Biden as president. The certification is usually a pro-forma affair, but it was disrupted by a violent riot at the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump. Lawmakers certified the results early on Thursday after working through the night.
