The 2020 election is well and truly heating up…
We’ve got a rundown of the key events that have happened so far, with all the latest developments.
But there’s one big question that many are considering for the first time…what will actually happen if neither candidate gets enough votes to become president?
We have the answers. Keep scrolling for the latest…
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 now secured Ohio, a state that has predicted every president since 1964.

“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 crucial state of Arizona, which will secure him 11 electoral votes.
It’s a battleground state Trump won 4 year priors.
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.”

What will happen if neither Biden nor Trump make it to the required 270 electoral college votes to enable them to win the presidency?
Well, it’s known to be the messiest result possible.
As the House of Representatives would be the decision-makers on the tie.
And as things stand, the House has a Republican majority of 26 to 22.
All of the House seats are also currently up for election.
And with lots of votes still to be counted, it’s still anyone’s game…
