On Saturday, November 7, 2020, after 5 long days of ballot counting, former Vice President Joe Biden was elected as our nation’s 46th president and his running mate Senator Kamala Harris as vice president. Despite COVID-19, more people voted in this election than ever before, many by absentee ballot.

Earlier on election day Donald Trump was ahead in many states, but as states were allowed to finally count their mail-in ballots, the results began to change. So many ballots were cast that it took some states days to finalize their counts, though the Trump administration is currently saying it will contest all mail-in ballots.

Nevertheless, this win is historic as President- elect Joe Biden is the oldest person to take office and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris is the first African American, South Asian woman to take the office of president.
