How does The Electoral College work?

Mr Biden, who is due to be inaugurated on 20 January, won 306 Electoral College votes to Mr Trump’s 232 following the 3 November election.

Despite the popular vote being settled, the US system means the formal process of the Electoral College choosing a president will not happen until 14 December.

Mr Trump continues to claim, without evidence, that the election was skewed by widespread fraud.
