Democratic nominee Joe Biden took an early election night lead Tuesday, outpacing US President Donald Trump in this year’s race for the White House with voting still underway across much of the country.

Biden laid claim to victories in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia, all reliably Democratic states, while Trump won in the conservative touchstones of Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia, according to The Associated Press.

The former vice president has added 85 Electoral College votes to his win column compared to 55 for Trump. Either candidate needs to win at least 270 to lay claim to the White House.

Polling stations closed in over 20 states and Washington, D.C. at 8 p.m. Eastern Time (0100 GMT), including the key battleground states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

This year, Election Day comes in the thick of the US’s worsening coronavirus pandemic. A record-setting number of voters have cast their ballots early either by mail or in-person at polling stations in a bid to avoid the crowded indoor spaces in which the virus thrives.

Some states, including Texas, Washington, Oregon, Montana, and Colorado, saw more people vote early than the entire turnout in 2016, according to the US Elections Project.

In all, over 101 million people cast ballots before Election Day. (Anadolu)
