First of all, it’s essential to know that the Democrat Candidate, Joe Biden is not officially announced as the US President-elect, he is only referred as “President-elect” because he is projected to win the November 3rd 2020 US election.
This might be confusing for those who don’t understand United State electoral process. To break it down to you, Joe Biden’s win has to be certified by Chief Election Official in each of America’s 50 states before he can officially be called “US President-elect”.
At the moment, vote counting is continuing in a handful of 50 states in America and as such the results of the 2020 presidential election can’t be called in.
And for instance, in the state of Georgia, the ballots will be recounted because of the small margin between Joe Biden and Donald Trump’s votes.
The Incumbent President, Trump has also filed a series of suits against Joe Biden in battleground states where the latter defeated him, or he is in the lead. These cases have to be concluded before the winner is also declared.
It’s only after December 14th that Joe Biden can formally be referred to as ‘President-elect’ and Kamala Harris as ‘Vice President-elect’.
Once vote counting is completed in all 50 states of America, electors will cast their electoral vote on December 14th based on the certified election results from their state to officially declare the winner of November 3rd.
