U.S. presidential election tonight at 8:00 p.m. Japan time voting begins On November 3, 20:00
The U.S. presidential election began at 8 p.m. Japan time, with voting starting in each state. As the spread of the new coronavirus continues and social divisions deepen more than before, the world’s attention is focused on whether President Trump will be re-elected or former Vice President Biden, a Democrat, will retake power.
The U.S. presidential election began at 8:00 p.m. local time on the morning of March 3 local time, and voting began in eastern New York and southern Virginia.
The victory or defeat of a presidential election is determined by the number of electors allocated to each state.
Of the 50 states in the United States, 48 states and Washington, the capital, have a “total winner system” in which candidates who exceed one vote by one vote win all voters in that state, and candidates who have won more than 270 people, the majority of the 538 electors, will be the winners.
The election was positioned as a referee for President Trump’s four years, and as the spread of the new coronavirus continued, the election campaign focused on whether antivirus or economic activity would resume, as well as the response to the issue of racism and economic policy that attracted voters’ attention.
While former Democratic Vice President Biden has consistently led the polls, In the final stages, President Trump has caught up and competed.
In addition, as each state has relaxed its postal voting system to prevent the spread of infection, as of February 2, 98.8 million people have completed early voting, and the voter turnout is expected to be the highest in 100 years.
On the other hand, President Trump has claimed that there is a risk of fraud in the postal vote, and there is a possibility of a court battle over the result of the vote, and there is a view that President Trump will unilaterally declare victory.
The world is paying attention to whether President Trump will be re-elected or Mr. Biden, a Democrat, will retake power in an election that is expected to deepen social divisions and cause confusion.
