Abraham Lincoln Declared Official Winner of 1860 Election This Date

On this date in 1861, Abraham Lincoln was declared official winner of the 1860 presidential election as electors cast their ballots.

Less than two months later, the nation was at war with itself.

Now, had Lincoln not been declared the winner, would the Southern states which had already seceded come back into the Union?
