US elections 2020: The US will choose between Joe Biden and Donald Trump. (File)

New Delhi:

President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden are fighting for the White House. Polls in the United States will gradually close on Tuesday – and then a long night of waiting for results.

The first results are incorporated. The US media is predicting victories for the previous Republican in 14 states, including Indiana, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Tennessee and West Virginia – all states he won in 2016.

Joe Biden has conquered 12 states, including his home state Delaware and the New York Grand Prix, as well as the US capital Washington. As before with Donald Trump, all of the states claimed by Biden were won by the Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016.

The magic number is 270. Observers expect the hotly contested White House race to boil down to a handful of key battlefield states that have not yet been called.

According to the U.S. Election Project Watchdog, a record number largely attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 100 million Americans cast their votes ahead of Tuesday’s election day, the AFP news agency reported.

Here are the live updates on the 2020 US presidential election:
