8AM Election Update: No winner, MI and battleground states up for grabs

8:00 a.m. ET Update: Election Day has now carried over into Wednesday morning with no clear winner emerging yet in a tight contest.

Trump and Biden both still have pathways to victory as votes are being counted but a final result is not expected this morning as three battleground swing states are not done counting: Michigan and Wisconsin may not announce a final tally until late tonight and Pennsylvania may not be called until later in the week.

Biden has picked up 224 electoral votes vs. 213 for Trump, according to CBS, CNN and NBC News projections. The AP and Detroit Free Press say Biden is holding a 238-213 edge in the Electoral College with millions of votes still to be counted.

Despite Biden’s narrow lead, President Trump tried to claim victory in an address to supporters, making a series of false and misleading claims about the state of the race: "So we'll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop. We don't want them to find any ballots at 4:00 in the morning and add them to the list, OK?"

Voting has finished in all 50 states and there’s no evidence that votes will be added, as Trump claims. Millions of legally cast ballots are still being counted. Biden, in an address to supporters in Delaware, urged patience as votes are counted and expressed confidence that he would ultimately prevail. Both still have pathways to 270 Electoral votes needed for victory.


Michigan voter turnout of at least 5.26 million is a record, with at least 3.26 million absentee ballots sent in and an estimated 2 million to 2.5 million Michiganders voting at the polls on Election Day. Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson expects votes in the state to be counted by Wednesday night, she said at a news conference late Tuesday evening.

Michigan's largest counties including Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Kent are still counting the record number of ballots as the presidential race tightens. Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett said as of 6:50 a.m., the county had only counted 55% of the precincts in Detroit.

Michigan’s Senate race between incumbent Democrat Gary Peters and Republican challenger John James is too early to call this morning, with many votes still uncounted. The Associated Press projects that Rep. Andy Levin, a Democrat from Michigan's 9th Congressional district and Rep. Bill Huizenga, a Republican from Michigan's 2nd Congressional District, will win re-election. The AP also projects that Lisa McClain, a Republican, has been elected to the U.S. House in Michigan's 10th Congressional District, replacing Paul Mitchell. Democratic Reps. Brenda Lawrence (14th district), Debbie Dingell (12th district) and Rashida Tlaib (13th district) all won re-election. The AP also projects several Republicans in other parts of Michigan would keep their seats. That includes Reps. Jack Bergman (1st district), John Moolenaar (4th district), Fred Upton (6th district) and Tim Walbert (7th district).
