2020 U.S. presidential election disputes

Neither candidate cleared the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House on election night, and the margins were tight in several fiercely contested states.

The fate of the United States presidency hung in the balance as Democratic challenger Joe Biden fought President Donald Trump in other battleground states that could prove crucial in determining who wins the White House.

Neither candidate cleared the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House on election night, and the margins were tight in several fiercely contested states. Top advisers for both Biden and Trump on Wednesday morning expressed confidence that they respectively had the likelier path to victory in the outstanding states.

As votes continue to be counted and races are called, the Trump campaign has already started filing lawsuits and asking for recounts in battleground states.

It was unclear when or how quickly a national winner could be determined.
