The US presidential race appears to be coming down to the wire in battleground states. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is projected to win California, Oregon and Washington, traditionally "blue" states that carry a whopping 74 Electoral College votes combined. However, US President Donald Trump is projected to win Florida and looks to be competitive in Texas.
Other results all point towards the rust belt states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan being where the election will be won or lost.
It is therefore still unclear whether the incumbent President will be getting a second term, or whether Mr Biden has done enough to get the keys to the White House.
With key swing states yet to call a winner, it's going to be a close call.
Some people even floated the idea there could be a tie.

Attaching a picture of an evenly split electoral map, Bloomberg's political reporter Ryan Teague Beckwith recently wrote on Twitter: "I regret to inform you that this map is still possible."
To win the presidency, a candidate must win 270 Electoral College votes, or a majority of the 538 electors at stake in the election.
However, it is possible that a presidential election could result in a tie, 269 to 269.
This would mean that even if Mr Biden does not win, Mr Trump could be stopped from being re-elected President by his arch-rival, the Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.
