U.S. Election so far: key tallies, undetermined states, certification deadlines

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Democrat Joe Biden won the Nov. 3 U.S. presidential election, beating President Donald Trump, after a longer-than-usual process of counting mail-in ballots that a record number of Americans relied on during the coronavirus pandemic.

Biden surpassed the 270 Electoral College votes needed to clinch the presidency on Saturday, and on Thursday Edison Research projected Biden as the winner in Arizona, leaving just Georgia and North Carolina to be decided.

At the same time, vote counts are being challenged in a number of states, including Michigan and Pennsylvania, while the Trump campaign has signaled it may seek a recount in Wisconsin.

Here are some key tallies in the White House race, as of 11:20 p.m. EST on Thursday (0420 GMT on Friday), as well as vote certification deadlines.
