We’ve got a timeline of what’s been happening during this election, along with the latest update from Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Scroll on to find out exactly what is going on…
Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts are all projected to have won their bids at re-election.
And of course, they had a lot to say about it.
And according to the Independent, polls showed that Biden and his vice presidential nominee, Kamala Harris, lead the way, being favored amongst 66% of voters.
And the first results of the 2020 election rapidly began flooding in.
It was quickly confirmed that Trump won in a number of states, including Indiana, Kentucky, and Alabama, while Biden won over the West Coast states, such as California, Washington, and Oregon.
At the time of writing, Trump calls a win with 51.3% of the vote, while Biden had 47.8%.
He has secured Ohio, a state that has predicted every president since 1964.
As per projections from NBC News and Fox News, Trump is projected to win in Ohio, which has predicted every president since 1964.
The Republican senator confirmed her re-election.
“We knew this was going to go long, but who knew we would go into maybe tomorrow morning, maybe even longer!” Biden said.
“But we feel good about where we are. I’m here to tell you tonight we believe we’re on track to win this election.”
It was quickly deleted from the social media platform.
Trump wins the crucial seat, earning him 38 electoral points.
In a speech, he expressed a worry that ballots would be found at “4 o’clock in the morning” which he didn’t think should be counted.
He followed up his wish to close voting by suggesting he would be taking the matter to the Supreme Court.
Trump said: “As far as I am concerned, we have already won.”
In a huge turn of events, Biden is predicted to win the state of Arizona, which will secure him a crucial 11 electoral votes.
It’s a battleground state that Trump won 4 years prior.
The state has previously only ever backed 1 other Democratic candidate in the last 72 years, so this is a huge event for Biden and his party tonight.
Biden defeated Trump, winning 3 of the state’s 4 Electoral College votes.
“The president’s statement tonight about trying to shut down the counting of duly cast ballots was outrageous, unprecedented, and incorrect,” said Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon in a statement:
“It was outrageous because it is a naked effort to take away the democratic rights of American citizens.
“It was unprecedented because never before in our history has a president of the United States sought to strip Americans of their voice in a national election. Having encouraged Republican efforts in multiple states to prevent the legal counting of these ballots before Election Day, now Donald Trump is saying these ballots can’t be counted after Election Day either.
“And it was incorrect because it will not happen. The counting will not stop. It will continue until every duly cast vote is counted. Because that is what our laws — the laws that protect every Americans’ constitutional right to vote — require.
“We repeat what the Vice President said tonight: Donald Trump does not decide the outcome of this election. Joe Biden does not decide the outcome of this election. The American people decide the outcome of this election. And the democratic process must and will continue until its conclusion.”
Surpassing Clinton’s 65,853,625 with 65,881,145 votes.
Andahl died of COVID-19 last month aged fifty-five, but the election results in North Dakota showed the Bismarck-area district going to both him and Dave Nehring.
After rising to prominence following his surprise primary win earlier this year, Cawthorn has defeated Democrat Moe Davis in the state’s eleventh Congressional District, which occupies most of Western North Carolina.

The twenty-seven-year-old, who goes by the pronouns she/they, won the state House election in Oklahoma’s 88th district making them the first non-binary state lawmaker as well as the first Muslim person to be elected to the state’s legislature.
The Democratic community organizer beat Republican candidate Kelly Barlean with a projected 71% of the vote.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, both Democrats, criticized President Donald Trump after he claimed victory (early) in the 2020 presidential race even though they have not been officially called yet.
And given the circumstances, it could be much longer until the final result is in.
The president continued where he left off writing:
“Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled. Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted. VERY STRANGE, and the “pollsters” got it completely & historically wrong!”
Once again calling out his grievance with mail-in ballots.
“We believe we are in a clear path to victory by this afternoon, we expect that the vice president will have leads in states that put him over 270 electoral votes today. The vice president will garner more votes than any presidential candidate in history, and we’re still counting. He has won over 50% of the popular vote. We are on track to win in Michigan by more than Donald Trump did in 2016. To win in Wisconsin by more than Trump did in 2016. To win in Pennsylvania by more than Trump did in 2016. And we flipped one of his states, Arizona.”
“Let’s be extremely clear about something, if Donald Trump got his wish and we stopped counting ballots right now, vice president Joe Biden would be the next president of the United States.”
