WASHINGTON, Va. (WDBJ) - A joint session of Congress will meet Wednesday, January 6, to certify the Electoral College results from the 2020 presidential election. Some Republicans, including Congressman Bob Good of Virginia, plan to object to the results, citing widespread voter fraud.

In a statement released by his office Tuesday, Good said:

“All Americans deserve to have confidence in the integrity and results of the election. It is Congress’ Constitutional duty to uphold and maintain the integrity of our system of government. The American people have voiced their concerns about the unprecedented volume of mail-in voting, and violations of longstanding state laws that may have resulted in fraud in the 2020 general election.

“On Jan. 6th, I will object to the certification of electors in multiple states for which laws were violated or evidence of fraud has not been sufficiently reviewed. This is about ensuring the will of the American people is accurately, justly and constitutionally followed. This vote is about election integrity.”

Both chambers must agree to an objection by a simple majority vote for it to be sustained.
