Despite supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump breaching  and vandalizing the U.S. Capitol, Congress confirmed Joe Biden’s 2020 Electoral College victory.

Leading up to the vote, several members of Congress, led by U.S. Sen. Josh Hawley and Alabama U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, vowed to object to the certification in an attempt to subvert the election results.

Although some members eventually backed off, including U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler, nearly half of the Southern delegation cast a vote to object to the election’s outcome.

Out of 130 Southern House representatives and senators, 59 voted to overturn the election results on the same day of the riot.

The House of Representatives’ votes varied by state, with many votes to overturn the results coming from outside of the South. But, the Senate votes to overturn the election came entirely from the South, Kansas and Wyoming.

Here is a complete list of House and Senate delegates from the South and how they voted. If you would like to share you thoughts on the vote, head over to our Instagram to engage with other Reckoners.

VIDEO: Some Republicans in Congress are seeking to overturn the 2020 election results, citing the 1876 election challenge as a basis. That challenge helped usher in the Jim Crow era. Here’s how.
