The joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral College vote results and affirm President-elect Joe Biden's win has begun.
What comes next: Four lawmakers designated as "tellers" — two from the House and two from the Senate — will read off the certificates of vote from each state. They'll do it alphabetically starting with Alabama.
The process usually takes about an hour, but this year it could go many hours because some Republicans plan to object to certain states — a step that will force up to two hours of debate for each state.
All of those objections will be voted on, and are expected to fail.
