Counting is well underway at this hour to determine who will hold the Oval Office come January. President Trump and Joe Biden going down to the wire.

The long divisive road to the White House is nearing an end. The fight between President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden to lead the nation filled with personal attacks, fiery debates, and parallel visions for America's future. Now it's all coming down to a few states.

All eyes are still on Pennsylvania where four years ago President Trump narrowly became the first Republican to win a presidential contest since 1988.

This race has been unlike any other. Being held during a pandemic, resulting in record mail-in and early voting. That turnout exceeding 100 million people. But on Election Day many voters still braving long lines and technical difficulties to have their voices heard.

In Georgia a water leak affecting a room in Fulton County where absentee ballots were being tabulated. Election officials there putting a pause on counting votes until Wednesday.

Biden addressed his supporters expressing confidence that he will win but also calling for patience as all the votes are counted. President Trump shortly after again sowing doubt in the election tweeting without evidence "they are trying to steal the election." Twitter flagged the tweet.

Trump has long claimed fraud, but election experts predicted this race would be close and that it would take time to tabulate all the votes and that's exactly what appears to be happening.
