Each time a member objected the Vice President asked if a senator has signed the objection as well. Hearing a no Biden quickly gaveled the objectors back in to order. Telling one “IT IS OVER”.

The objections continued through the process but in the end the Joint Session of Congress certified the results. Biden declared Donald J. Trump as the next President of the United States with 304 votes to Hillary Clinton’s 227 votes.
