UNITED STATES – Democratic Party candidate, Joe Biden, is now projected to have 284 Electoral College votes on Saturday.
This is beyond the 270 threshold needed to clinch the United States presidential seat.
Biden was projected to have surpassed the 270 electoral vote-threshold after the AP called Pennsylvania in his favour.
His running mate, Kamala Harris, has made history as the first woman elected as Vice President of the US
This year, votes took longer to count, due to the high increase of mail-in ballots which many Americans chose to use amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
US President Donald Trump’s campaign has vowed to challenge the result, particularly in the states of Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan.
