Americans have been casting ballots for weeks. No more than 100 million of them. Today is the culmination of all those weeks all those votes to mark the day on the programme. We're going to take you to swing states like Michigan and Florida. We're gonna let you hear from the presidential campaigns and poll workers. What? You won't hear what you probably want to hear more than anything I know, but what you are not going to hear in these early hours of the evening our election results this year.

Just because we don't know By the time we go to bed or by the time the late local news is on doesn't mean anything's wrong. It's not a sign of fraud or malfeasance. It's probably an unfair expectation that we would always know on election day before the pandemic, and I think it's certainly in unfair expectation now, especially with just this huge boom of advanced votes. It's just democracy at work. So when will we be able to tell you who's the next president of the United States?

Scott, I'm going to start with you. You're traveling again with Joe Biden today. It sounds like we've caught you once again on the campaign bus. In fact, you can tell us about that.

He said he was thinking about his mother. Biden was greeted by big and clearly adoring crowds as he made stops in Scranton. But then he flew to Philadelphia and that was all business. Philadelphia is a critical center of Democratic votes. In statewide elections, and Biden made that point speaking to some supporters into a bullhorn,.
