How many votes still to be counted? You might find this useful. One of the other posters put the link up earlier. Pennsylvania, Georgia and Arizona are updating reasonably often. I dont think there will be anything more from Nevada today but I'm happy to be corrected on that. https://alex.github.io...

Is there any reason why some news sites have Biden currently sitting at 253 to 214, and others have it as 264 to 214?
Only Fox news and AP have called the 11 Arizona EC votes for Biden. There's now every chance he could lose it because Trump is catching him.

See Trump is out to a 15 point lead in Penn with 64% counted. Did the pollster's get this one completely wrong? Apparently they've stopped counting absentee ballots until tomorrow There are also some large urban counties that are only about halfway through their counts. The lawyers are salivating.
