Members of the Electoral College from 50 state and Washington, D.C., meet Monday and are expected to formally choose Joe Biden the next U.S. president.

With 270 Electoral College votes needed, Biden won 306 votes, compared to 232 votes for President Trump.

In 32 states and the District of Columbia, laws require electors to vote for the popular-vote winner. The Supreme Court unanimously upheld this arrangement in July, according to the Associated Press.

The high court declined last week to take a case by the Texas attorney general to set aside 62 electoral votes for Biden in four states, which could have changed the outcome of the race.
