What is the voting process here? Is a majority vote necessary to accept or reject? Or is a single Senator that can block certification?
Adding to the previous two correct answers: if you're asking about this last-ditch effort to subvert the election results, led by Ted "Macho Beard" Cruz, it is independent from objections to the Electoral College's voter slates. Cruz et al. are seeking a 10-day investigation into alleged voter fraud, and want the final certification of the election result (scheduled for Wednesday) to be postponed till after the investigation is concluded.

Sounds reasonable, except that Trump and his team have had 60 opportunities to present evidence of fraud before the courts and have failed to do so on each and every occasion. And there's no suggestion that new evidence has since come to light, unless you count the tape that clearly demonstrates that Trump tried to induce a senior public official to commit electoral fraud in Georgia on his behalf.

Even Cruz admits that all the Democrats and "more than a few Republicans" will vote against his proposal, so that's doomed as well.

It's all political grandstanding by the jackals snapping at the heels of the mortally wounded lion (or some other animal with a large yellow mane).
