Hours after a violent mob of President Trump’s supporters breached the U.S. Capitol Building, forcing a lockdown and leaving four people dead, Congress reconvened to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.

Vice President Mike Pence, who presided over the vote count, formally announced the results of Biden’s 306-232 win over Trump in the Electoral College.

The confirmation came nearly 12 hours after hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators stormed the Capitol while lawmakers were counting the electoral votes inside. Four people, including a woman who was shot by police, died during the chaos.
