NEW HANOVER CTY - At press time on Tuesday morning, the unofficial election count for the Electoral College for the Office of the President of the United States of America was 238 for former Vice President Joe Biden and 213 for incumbent President Donald Trump.
While neither candidate reached the 270 mark for electoral college votes on election night, Trump did make an announcement claiming victory.
With a lot of states still counting mail-in ballots, the final results are largely unsure as of election night. The Electoral College is comprised of 538 members, representing the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
270 electoral votes are required by a candidate to win election and neither candidate reached that mark on Tuesday.
Trump explained, "This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly we did win this election."
Trump went on to say the matter would be taken to the courts for a decision.
At this point in the election process, considering the massive number of mail-in ballots that will have to be counted by
the end of the week,
and the vast number of those mail-in ballots, the election count could be different from what was counted on Election Day.
