Polls are closed across the country and presidential results are starting to trickle in. Donald Trump and Joe Biden are racing towards the 270 needed electoral votes.
Below is a map showing which states Trump has won and which Biden has won. It is expected to take some time (possibly several days) for final votes for all states to be finalized due to the high volume of absentee voting this election. Races not yet decided:
Alaska, Arizona, Georgia and North Carolina.
Here is a breakdown of states Trump and Biden are projected to have won.
When Will We Know the Official Results?
As explained by CNN, there’s a very good chance we may not know the winner tonight. “With so many more voters expected to vote by mail, it’s entirely possible states will not have final or close to final results even within days of the end of voting. Some states will count ballots they receive weeks after Election Day. And if margins are as close in some battlegrounds as they were in 2016, that means it could take a long time to get all the absentee and provisional votes counted. The Electoral College isn’t required to meet until the first Monday after the second Wednesday in December, so states have time to finalize their results.”
