US Elections- Biden: 306, Trump: 232

  • CNN also reported that Biden won Arizona by more than 11,000 votes.
  • Georgia announced that it would recount all votes cast in last week’s presidential election, due to the close advantage that President-elect Joe Biden gained from president Donald Trump.
  • Infrastructure and Cybersecurity Security Agency (CISA) reported that “there is no evidence” of lost or changed votes or altered voting systems.

Arizona and Georgia were painted blue, raising the number of electoral votes for US President-elect, Joe Biden hence confirming his victory. For the first time in decades, Arizona voted for a Democrat for president. Bill Clinton won the state in 1996 and was the only Democrat to achieve that triumph since Harry S. Truman.

On Friday, Joe Biden won Georgia and added 16 votes at the Electoral College confirming his victory in the presidential election. CNN also reported that Biden won Arizona by more than 11,000 votes. With these two wins, Biden came out with a total of 306 votes at the Electoral College.

Worth noting however is the fact that for the first time in decades, Arizona voted for a Democrat for president. Bill Clinton won the state in 1996 and was the only Democrat to achieve that triumph since Harry S. Truman.

The results were also pending in North Carolina; the state that was painted red and gave Donald Trump 15 electoral votes totaling to 232 votes, confirming his defeat in this year’s election. However, the president has refused to accept the results and insists that there was voter fraud.

Recount in Georgia

This Wednesday, November 11, the state of Georgia announced that it would recount all votes cast in last week’s presidential election, due to the close advantage that President-elect Joe Biden gained from president Donald Trump.

At a press conference, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger revealed that decision and said he expects the process to end by November 20, the deadline for certifying the results of elections in the territory.

Transparency is indispensable for ensuring confidence in the outcome of Georgia’s elections, which is why I have instructed county elections officials to ensure political party monitors can watch every step of the way the Georgia secretary of state said friday.

However, two days after Raffensperger’s announcement of the deadline for delivering the results, several local media outlets have already projected Biden’s victory in Georgia. New York Times accounts show that the president-elect won in Georgia with just over 14,000 votes.

“The Safest Election in U.S. History.”

“While we know that there are many unfounded claims and misinformation about our electoral process, we can assure you that we have the greatest confidence in the security and integrity of the elections, and you too should have it,” the officials in charge of election security across the country reported.

Officials rejected President Donald Trump’s claims that his defeat is due to fraud and lost ballots. In a statement, they said that “The November 3 election was the safest in American history,”

News reporting is my thing. My view of what is happening in our world is colored by my love of history and how the past influences events taking place in the present time.  I like reading politics and writing articles. It was said by Geoffrey C. Ward, "Journalism is merely history's first draft." Everyone who writes about what is happening today is indeed, writing a small part of our history.
