12:52: In Georgia, with 16 delegates, Democratic candidate Joe Biden came behind and passed Trump’s vote. It is stated that the remaining votes in Georgia, where US President Donald Trump is slightly ahead, are expressed in tens of thousands. In the state, the results can be evident in a very short time.
11.55: Ongoing vote counts in the states of Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada will determine which candidate will take the lead in the US election.
Joe Biden leads the race in Arizona and Nevada. The Donald Trump team has intense legal efforts in both states.
In Pennsylvania and Georgia, Trump appears to be ahead of the current results. On the other hand, it is reported that Biden is closing the gap in both states.
In Georgia, the gap is around 463 votes and Biden continues to close the gap.
In Pennsylvania, the difference decreased to 18 thousand. Biden is reported to have a great advantage in the votes sent by mail in the state. Vote counts will continue throughout the day.
09.35: The Washington Post newspaper announced that the secret service sent additional security to Joe Biden, who was closer to the White House while the race was going on. The Washington Post reported that, based on two knowledgeable people, it has decided to send reinforcements to Wilmington, Deleware, from today to protect Joe Biden, the former vice president of the secret service.
This decision was made after Biden’s campaign team warned that the Democratic candidate would continue to use the Wilmington Convention Center for at least one more day and make a big speech on Friday, according to sources close to the secret service.
Secret service spokesperson Catherine Milhoan declined to comment, stressing that the agency did not discuss security planning publicly for the president or candidates it is protecting
09.20: All eyes are on four states in the USA, how many more games should be counted in these states?
Georgia: There are 15,000 unopened votes as of 08:00.

Pennsylvania: 220,000 more votes to count in state

08:15: As the vote count progresses in Arizona, where Democrat candidate Biden leads the race, the number of Trump supporters gathering in front of the election center in Phoenix, the state’s largest city, increases.
US media reported that 200-300 Trump supporters gathered in front of the Maricopa Election Center.
Photographs passed in front of the election center show some of the protesters carrying semi-automatic rifles. Reports in the US press also confirm this.
In some states, Trump supporters demand a halt to the vote count, while here they are calling for the count to continue.
Gönül Tol, from the Washington-based Middle East Institute, explained the reason for this on Twitter:
“As the postal votes open in Arizona, the opposite of the other places emerges, Trump is catching up. Because Arizona has a tradition of voting by mail, Republicans are voting by mail.”
In Pennsylvania and Georgia, the Democrats’ vote tends to increase as postal votes are counted.
Biden leads the race with 46,667 votes in Arizona.
07.35: Donald Trump took legal action to stop the vote count in several key states where his leadership was rapidly declining. A federal judge in Pennsylvania denied the Trump campaign’s request to stop the count.
Judge Paul Diamond also addressed complaints that observers of the Trump campaign were not given equal access to the vote counting center.
Diamond said that both Republicans and Democrats were allowed to send 60 representatives to monitor the census.
“I don’t quite understand why this cannot be agreed upon without judicial intervention,” said Diamond.
State officials said Republicans were not prevented from observing the census, but a Republican representative had previously refused to adhere to social distance rules.
04.20: The Trump team’s application for the vote count in Pennsylvania has been concluded. The court ruled that both Democratic and Republican observers have equal access to vote counting procedures. Trump claimed that Republican observers were not included in the vote count.

00.14: The Trump team applied to the Federal Court to observe the vote count in Philadelphia.
23:24: Pennsylvania State Secretary Kathy Boockvar said she did not expect the late postal votes that were the subject of the case to be sufficiently large to affect the result.
23:15: Georgia state enumerator said he expects the vote count to end 10 days after the election.
