On November 3rd, 2020 Americans went out to vote for their desired candidate for the next President of the United States. However, for the first time after Election Day we will not know who officially won the election.
Due to COVID-19, mail-in ballots have been submitted at an all time high, but not all of them were counted on Election Day. These ballots will be counted in the following days and may completely change the results of some states close in votes. The two key states most political analysis are keeping an eye on is Pennsylvania and Michigan. These two states are essential for presidential candidate Joe Biden to win the presidency. Likewise, President Trump winning these states will secure him another four years in the White House as President of the United States. As of the time of this writing, President Donald Trump is leading in both Michigan and Pennsylvania. We do not know exactly how many mail ballots were sent to each state and even if they will be enough to swing each state to the other political party. We also do not know when the counting of the mail ballots will be completed. Until then, citizens will have to wait in the coming days to get a complete and full answer to who won the Presidential election
The lead at this time appears to be in presidential candidate Joe Biden’s at 223 electoral votes, at the time of this writing. Biden is currently ahead of President Donald Trump, who currently has 145 electoral votes. However, states Trump is leading in such as Florida, Texas, Ohio, North Carolina and Georgia have yet to be counted towards his electoral count. Leading the popular vote is Joe Biden.
KURE News will continue to update the results of the presidential election as more information is given as soon as we are able to.
