Pence certifies Biden Electoral College win

A joint session of Congress erupts into clapping and cheers as Senator Amy Klobuchar recommends US Vice President Mike Pence certify the Electoral College victory for President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris.

Pence reads out the results of the vote 306-232 in a monotone, officially certifying the results, in what is normally a little-watched procedural motion.

Following an invocation by a chaplain condemning violence, Pence closes the joint session and declares the session closed, to a smaller round of applause.
