CNN had already predicted Biden as the winner in both Pennsylvania, where he led by more than 81,000 votes, and in Nevada, where Biden won by more than 33,000 votes, according to the Secretary of State.
“Today @PAStateDept certified the results of the November 3 election in Pennsylvania for President and Vice President of the United States. As required by federal law, I signed the Certificate of Voter Establishment for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris,” Governor Tom Wolfe wrote in a post in Twitter.
Wolf continued to thank the election officials for their work.
“Once again, I want to thank the election officials who held fair and free elections during an extremely challenging time in our community and the country̵
7;s history. Our election workers have been under constant attack and they have performed admirably and honestly,” Wolf added.
Pennsylvania’s certification comes after the state’s 67 counties certified the results in the area by Community Secretary Kati Bukvar.
Bukvar said the counties submitted their joint votes for president late Monday.
Speaking before the Nevada Supreme Court on Tuesday morning, Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Chegawske officially confirmed the results of the 2020 Nevada general election. Republican Chegawske did not verbally acknowledge Biden as the winner of the presidential race. The Nevada Supreme Court signed the campaign for each county before the official certification of the results.
States must certify their results by December 8, before the Electoral College meeting on December 14.
Tuesday’s certification followed a dramatic meeting Monday at the Michigan State Election Commission, which also voted to validate the results of the Biden election after one of the two Republican council members decided to abstain.
This triggered the state of formal transition procedures by the Federal General Services Administration.
