Results pours in from across the United States. Democratic Party candidate and former vice president Joe Biden is taking on Republican Party’s nominee and current President Donald Trump. California Senator Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence are their respective running mates. Biden is leading Donald Trump in the overall Electoral College vote tally.
But, things can still might change as the margins are narrow in multiple battleground states. If Biden wins Pennsylvania, it will give him majority of the electoral votes. Voters were forced to vote early this time, especially through mail-in ballots, to avoid queues amid the coronavirus pandemic. Thus, over 101 million votes were cast and recorded prior the Election Day. Voters had cast about 73.4 percent of the total votes counted in the 2016 presidential election, even before Election Day. Counting of mail ballots is more laborious and that is delaying the result.
