Joe Biden has received more than 270 Electoral College votes, securing the president-elect’s victory as electors across the country cast their votes on behalf of the 50 states and the District of Columbia to choose the next president.

In a speech to her state’s electors, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer said: “After today, the results will be final. It’s time to move forward together.”

Donald Trump has meanwhile continued to rage against his election defeat on Twitter, arguing without evidence for his claims that: “Swing States that have found massive VOTER FRAUD, which is all of them, CANNOT LEGALLY CERTIFY these votes as complete & correct without committing a severely punishable crime.”

Barring surprise defections from “faithless” electors, Mr Biden is expected to claim 306 votes to Mr Trump’s 232 in accordance with last month’s election results, bringing the country closer to ending a nightmarish post-election period in which the president has doggedly contested his challenger’s victory through a series of frivolous lawsuits, which have so far comprehensively failed to substantiate his baseless claims of widespread voter fraud.
