Election Winner and Aftermath

Election Winner and Aftermath

Joe Biden is projected to win the presidency with 306 electoral votes to Donald Trump’s 232. 270 electoral votes are necessary to win the election. Donald Trump continues to contest the election in court with lawsuits in several state and federal courts and requesting recounts in places where the vote was close. So far the recounts have confirmed Joe Biden’s lead, and out of forty lawsuits, only 4-5 are still active with the rest being pending, withdrawn, dismissed, or denied by the court. Joe Biden is slowly transitioning into the role of president and has selected 15 personnel as a Covid-19 task force. 135 electoral votes have been certified for Joe Biden and the rest of the states should finish within the next two weeks. Joe Biden is slated to be sworn in as president on January 20th.
