"Here’s what you need to know while watching the election returns. We all know it’s not a national vote: You can win the most votes and still lose the election. But it’s also not as simple as winning the most Electoral College votes.

The presidential election is a complicated process involving federal rules, state rules, and even county rules. It also consists of multiple steps which, historically, have been overlooked because the outcome was already understood. This year, however, what happens on election night could very well determine whether those formalities play out the way they should, or whether yet another set of norms is undermined and overturned to subvert the will of the people. Those norms can be guarded only if the public knows the facts and holds their media and leaders accountable to those facts.
Here are some of the vulnerable points between the vote and the inauguration: Each state certifies their final count

* By Dec. 14, governors report to Congress the victor in their state and their slate of electors

* Electors meet and vote in each state and report their results to Congress

* On Jan. 6, 2021, Electoral College votes are counted in a joint session of the new Congress

That’s the process every four years. But you may have noticed that a lot of people have a chance to meddle with this process — including state legislatures, which theoretically can send their own slate of electors to Congress. In fact, pretty much anyone can send their own Electoral College slate to Congress…and Congress can pick whichever one it wants."
