Senator Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican, has stated he would object to the Electoral College results next week when Congress meets to officially certify President-elect Joe Biden's victory, forcing lawmakers in both the House and Senate to vote on whether to accept the results of the 2020 election. Even though Hawley's objection won't change the election's outcome, it can delay the affirmation of Biden's win.
