A number of news outlets are now calling the US election 2020 for Democrat candidate Joe Biden. Mr Biden is projected to win the state of Pennsylvania, which has 20 electoral college votes, bringing Mr Biden above the 270 vote threshold needed for the Presidency.
America headed to the polls on Tuesday, November 3, and it has been a tense few days waiting for election results to be counted in key states.
But Joe Biden is now projected to win more votes than incumbent President Donald Trump, meaning Mr Trump will not serve a second term in office.
Mr Biden is the oldest person to assume office in US presidential history at the age of 78.
On Friday Mr Biden did not give a speech declaring victory, but acknowledged that he expected to win the election.
When does Biden start? When is inauguration?
On December 14 electors will meet to formally vote for the President and the Vice President.
On January 20 the US will then mark Inauguration Day.
Inauguration Day will mark the start of Joe Biden’s four-year term as President, and the start of Kamala Harris’ term as Vice President.
