& # 39; All of the states recently claimed by Biden are being challenged by us for election fraud and election fraud. Lots of evidence – just check out the media. WE WILL WIN! America First !, '' Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday morning.

Nevada only has 6 votes for the electoral college, but the Silver State polls – many of which are volunteers – have put the nation's limelight on them as those votes could mean victory for Biden.
Biden currently leads with 264 of the 270 electoral college votes required to capture the White House, meaning Nevada's 6 would lead him to a victory.
With around 12,000 votes – around 1 percent – he currently leads the state in which people have voted democratically over the past 16 years.
Nevada, Arizona and Georgia had expected to end their counts Thursday, but then expectations changed.
Pennsylvania officials who said prior to election day that all counts would not be complete until Friday, when all postal ballot papers were received, now said the state could have a result Thursday night.
It's unclear when North Carolina will announce, but it's expected to go to Trump like 2016.
If Biden holds Arizona he would only have to win one from Nevada, Georgia, North Carolina or Pennsylvania to get the win.
But if he loses the state, Trump will go from 214 votes to 220. Trump would then only need 42 additional votes from Georgia (16), North Carolina (15) and Pennsylvania (20) – all states in which he is located Lead – to get victory, provided he also wins Alaska's three electoral college votes, which he is virtually guaranteed to get.
