US Elections rely on projected counts which aren’t actual results

Although media site projections typically see accurate leads, the final percentages for US Elections are sometimes different.

As such, the leads should be taken as a precursor to actual results, before the final count is in. AP and major news networks are calling the win for Democratic candidate Joe Biden however, so a new US Presidency may be on the horizon.

All the best to voters who have done their part in upholding years of democracy in the United States. May the best candidate be elected in January.
