270 or more are the electoral votes a candidate is expected to amass from the electoral college for them to be declared president of the US.

Donald Trump, who soon after the Tuesday, November 3, poll claimed the vote was rigged in Biden's favour, has already filed lawsuits in places like Georgia.

According to Trump, who is trailing at a distance behind Biden, poll workers continued counting mailed-in votes which were presented even after official polling hours.
