With his recent win in the Georgia 2020 elections Joe Biden has surpassed the requisite 270 electoral votes needed to ascend to the US presidency.
Biden currently sits at 290 electoral votes. However, the Trump presidential campaign has launched a series of lawsuits in key battleground states such as Georgia, which has 16 electoral votes.
Georgia’s voting results were contested in court by the Trump presidential campaign. The lawsuit was thrown out for lack of evidence.
The Trump campaign also filed a federal lawsuit on Nov. 10 against Michigan’s Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and local state canvassers, alleging that the results should not be certified due to alleged fraud.
Michigan has 16 electoral votes as well.
The Biden campaign managed to win a tight contest in Nevada, a state the the Trump campaign desperately needed to flip in order to eek out a win in this years election. With the finalizing of the Vegas voter certifications, the Biden campaign solidified a win in left leaning battleground state.
The Trump campaign has paired with a local Nevada resident, Jill Stokey, who herself has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that the signature verification technology used in Clark County, the most populous county in the state, was faulty and producing incorrect name results.
Nevada holds 6 electoral votes.
The Biden campaign won a total of 79,139,212 opposed to the Trump campaign’s 73,383,611 making this the election with the most participants in the last 30 years.
However this is with regards to the fact that these numbers consist of under half the US’s total population, and only around 65% of America’s total eligible voters.
