Biden currently has 253 electoral votes, while Trump has 213.
Here's a look at where vote counting stands in two key states:
- Pennsylvania: Pennsylvania, the state that could take Biden over the 270-vote threshold needed to win the presidency, could complete most of its outstanding counts on Thursday or Friday, officials there said. The former vice president is only behind Trump by a little more than 78,000 votes in the Keystone State after having trailed at one point by more than half a million ballots in the hours after polls closed.
- Georgia: The state is one Trump cannot afford to lose with its 16 electoral votes, Biden's mail-in ballot advantage has pulled him to less than 4,000 votes of the President, as results came in from Fulton County around Atlanta with 98% of the state vote count reported. There are approximately 18,936 ballots still outstanding across the state as of 7:15 p.m. ET, according to a statement by Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Almost all of the outstanding ballots are absentee ballots, Raffensperger told CNN earlier today.
Trump cannot find a route to 270 electoral votes without Georgia and Pennsylvania, so his chances of securing reelection will hinge on developments in these two states in the coming hours.
