Election Updates-- Vote Recounts!

Bella Lankford and Daniel Potter

Many news sites have already reported that Joe Biden has won the 2020 election, with 290 electoral votes and Trump with 232. But due to the uncertainty for fraud votes, President Trump has called for a re-count, as well as filed lawsuits for voter fraud and violations in the vote count in several states. Many lawsuits have been filed to temporarily stop vote counts in many states, but multiple have already been dismissed. The Trump campaign has called for a recount in Wisconsin, and requests have been put in to recount votes in states like Arizona and possibly Pennsylvania. Election officials in Georgia have came out to say that a recount is expected. Officials will meet to verify the outcome for their state. On December 14th, Electoral Colleges in each state meet to vote on the outcome.
