As the race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump continues to be too close to call, it was revealed that Biden broke the record for the most votes in the presidential election.

Obama previously held the record after receiving 69,498,516 votes in 2008, and Biden has gotten a record 69,589,840 votes and counting in the 2020 election. As of midday Wednesday (November 4), Biden is leading the popular vote against President Donald Trump, who has collected 66,706,923 votes. It was also revealed that Biden has collected 227 electoral college votes, and Mr. Trump has 213 out of the 270 required to secure the election. This could be the second time Trump loses the popular vote, as he did against Hillary Clinton in 2016.
