As of 3:00 p.m. PST on Thursday, November 5, former Vice Pres. Joe Biden and his running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, are inching to the magic number of 270 electors while Pres. Donald J. Trump and Vice Pres. Mike Pence lost court cases in Georgia with 16 electoral votes outstanding; Michigan, which awarded its 16 electoral votes to Biden.

The Trump administration had a small victory in the courts over the ability to observe vote counting in Pennsylvania, which has 20 electoral votes outstanding.

According to the Associated Press, the lawsuits are the groundwork for contesting a Biden/Harris victory.

Results from North Carolina (15 votes), Nevada (6 votes), and Arizona (11 votes) are also not final.
