By Phil Bainbridge

November 3, 2020 - U.S. voters go to the polls to decide who will become the next President of the United States on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, with a choice of the two oldest candidates in the country’s history – 74-year-old incumbent Donald Trump, and Democrat Joe Biden, aged 77. A large number of voters are likely to post in their ballot due to the coronavirus pandemic, meaning the result may not be known until days - if not weeks - later, and raises the prospect of a contested election due to alleged mail-in voting fraud.

EDITORS - TECHNICAL NOTE: This graphic will automatically change from projections to exit polls at 00:01 GMT on the day of the election, and then to live counts and finally declared results as they are announced.

Please contact Graphic News for instructions if you are hosting the graphic yourself and want to see what it will look like after that time - The graphic can be pointed to alternative versions of the “data set” by changing one of the lines of code.
