Donald Trump is leading the votes in Florida with almost all votes counted.

But states such as Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, and North Carolina are toss-ups.

More than 100 million people cast their ballots in early voting before election day on Tuesday – setting the US on course for its highest turnout in a century.

About vote for Senate

Republicans have lost a Senate seat in Colorado, but they have gained one in Alabama.

As per the details, Mitch McConnell, the Republican Senate leader, and Trump ally Lindsey Graham have both been re-elected.

The House of Representatives is likely to be led by Democrats this time.

Initial Presidential results so far

As per the partial result, the battlegrounds in the Midwest and Rust Belt of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Ohio look as though they could go either way in the White House race.

Mr. Biden has a solid lead in Arizona. But Trump is leading votes in Texas.

Both Florida and Pennsylvania are considered must-wins for Mr. Trump if he is to be re-elected to a second term in office.
