Former Vice President Joe Biden — a Democrat — is the projected 46th president of the United States, winning the election after four days of ballot counting in key battleground states.
Kamala Harris, a senator from California, was elected the vice president — the first woman, first Black person and the first South Asian American to hold this position.
This was a landmark election for some young voters as many of them got to vote for a president for the first time.
As of this moment, North Carolina’s presidential results still have not been finalized by any major news outlets, but Trump has a 2% lead with 98% of votes reported.
In a projection from The Economist, Biden was expected to have a 97% chance of gaining enough electoral votes to win.
