Counting and Certifying the Vote in the 2020 Election

As protestors shouted “Stop the count!” outside counting operations in some states and “Count the votes!” in others, the counting of votes in the 2020 U.S. presidential contest engendered all the controversy one would expect given the narrow margin of victory in the Electoral College and the polarized political environment in which the vote counting took place. This memo addresses what happened during the vote count in the days after the November 3 election. It focuses on the six states whose electoral votes decided the next president of the United States: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, with addendums on Florida and North Carolina.
