Usually, the election results are announced on the election day as soon as counting is done and that’s not the case in 2020’s elections but that’s actually normal because there is no rule in the constitution that makes it mandatory for the results to be announced on election day.

Looking at the CNN Election Map, the majority of the coast of the country has been taken by Biden while the Upper towards the South is majority Trump with a huge red cloud — with that said, there is still a lot of gray areas where counting is not done yet in #Elections2020.

These gray areas consist of 7 major battleground states namely Arizona, Wisconsin, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and North Carolina where both candidates are closely contesting with no major differences in their votes.  These states will surely determine the next American president whether we have a new one or a second term.

Besides the fact that it has always been normal for elections to go past election day without results, 2020 elections were altered by the coronavirus pandemic which changed how people voted. In 2000, the winner of the elections for that year was only announced on the 12th of December, 1 month after elections were done.

According to experts, this is very much normal. The “expected” piece is that everyone knew going into Tuesday that the coronavirus had fundamentally altered the math on how people cast votes. Whereas roughly 46 million people had voted earlier in 2016, more than 100 million did so in 2020 — a stunning increase was driven by concerns about Covid-19 and a series of state law changes designed to make it easier to vote early, whether in person or by mail.

When you double the number of early votes and keep the same rules in place about when and how they will be counted (and the same or fewer number of election officials to count them), what we are seeing this Wednesday morning is to be expected.

Counting is still being done and Donald Trump had no right to make claims he made at an event he hosted for 250 guests at the White House where he said, “We were going to win this election,” Trump told allies in the East Room of the White House. “Frankly, we did win. So we’ll be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. As far as I’m concerned, we already did win.”

Most of the votes being counted now are those that were mailed in. According to state laws and regulations, mailed in votes were to be counted after votes cast on the day of elections
