Joe Biden wins 2020 presidential election

November 3rd, 2020 was an important day in U.S. history. It was Election Day! Millions of people voted that day.

Millions more voted by mail.

Some states had incredibly close races. For this reason, it took a very long time to count all the votes.

Over the next four days, states were slowly called for either Republican Donald Trump, or for Democrat Joe Biden.

Finally, on Nov. 7th, the state of Pennsylvania was called for Biden. This gave him enough votes in the Electoral College to win the presidential election. Biden’s win will make him the 46th president of the United States.

It also means that the U.S. will have the first woman, and first Black person, to serve as vice president. The vice president-elect is Kamala Harris.

Biden and Harris are setting up their administration.
