Washington: Amid chaos and violence the counting of Vermont's three electoral votes has certified the elections of US President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. With this they have over 270-threshold needed to win the American presidency.

On Wednesday night after violent protests rocked Washington D.C., the Senate and House rejected objections to throwing out Georgia and Pennsylvania's electoral votes for Biden.

Republicans also objected to Arizona, Nevada, and Michigan's electoral votes, but the motions failed before they reached debate.

The certification comes after thousands of Trump supporters assembled in Washington D.C. earlier on Wednesday as Congress convened in a joint session to certify Biden's victory.

But both the House and the Senate, which were separately debating an objection to the counting of Arizona's electoral votes, had to recess and evacuate after the protesters breached the Capitol.

Confrontations between law enforcement officers and the protesters have inflicted injuries on both sides.

At least four people have been, 52 arrested and 14 police officers injured as a result of the violence.
