The race for the White House is coming down to who wins the few remaining battleground states – Georgia, Pennsylvania, Nevada and Arizona.

A win in just Pennsylvania or two of the other four remaining states would be enough to confirm Mr Biden as president-elect, barring any legal challenge.

Mr Trump, meanwhile, needs to win Pennsylvania and three of the remaining four states.

Paths to victory

follow the votes as they come in on our state by state results page.

Here’s the state of play in the states at play.

GEORGIA – 16 electoral votes

Where things stand: The BBC’s results system and US partner CBS are now also showing a Biden lead in Georgia of about 1,000 votes.

How many votes are still be counted: Local officials said on Thursday that around 15,000 votes were left to count, but there has been no update since.

How many votes are still be counted: Just over 163,000 votes remain.

Where are these votes? In counties won by Hillary Clinton in 2016, so mostly Democratic votes.

NEVADA – 6 electoral votes
