While the world processes the results from 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, the race to the finish line was as nail-biting as many had predicted.
In a first for the United States, Kamala Harris—the daughter of Jamaican and Indian parents—will serve as the country’s first ever female and Indian-American vice president.
While his road to victory took off on a rocky start—thanks to Trump’s ‘red mirage’—his chances of reaching the necessary electoral college votes became a reality when he won the historically Republican swing states of Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
But of course, it wasn’t until he secured the state of Pennsylvania that took his votes from 264 to over 270, ultimately winning the election.
After an incredibly close race, that kept the world holding their breath for what felt like weeks, Biden’s bid for presidency saw the highest voter turn-out in U.S. history and saw him earn the most votes for any U.S. presidential candidate ever.
With life altering issues at stake—including climate change, race relations and abortion rights, among others—the 2020 election proved how influential the power of voting can be.
Chrissy Teigen, Michelle Obama, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Lopez are just some of many famous figures taking to social media to express all kinds of relief, joy and hope over the Democratic Party’s win.
