On November 7, 2020, Pennsylvania was called for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, earning 273 electoral votes–three more than needed to win the presidency of the United States of America.

Kamala Harris will be the first female vice-president of the United States, the first woman of color, and the first daughter of immigrants to hold the office.

Celebrations erupted world-wide.

Nevada also was called for the Biden ticket on Saturday, raising the electoral votes to 279. This story will be updated as more data is made available.
