Election Day Live Updates: Donald Trump, Joe Biden Square Off For President, Latest Senate And House Results

 Billions of people around the world on Tuesday await the results of an unprecedented U.S. election. In a battle between two septuagenarian candidates with broadly different political platforms and philosophies, the election could potentially set record turnout numbers, even at a time when a pandemic has killed over 270,000 Americans.

One day before Tuesday's election, more than 98 million ballots had already been cast -- roughly 71% of the 138 million ballots cast in the 2016 presidential election. Experts predict that the turnout could well exceed 150 million.

The presidential election is a two-person race, with Republican President Donald Trump trailing in most polls to Democratic nominee Joe Biden. According to election forecaster FiveThirtyEight, Biden has an 89% chance of winning the electoral college with an average of 348.5 electoral votes -- substantially more than the 270 needed to win the election. Biden, who served for eight years as vice president, is predicted to win the popular vote and leads Trump in two polls released Monday by 10 points and 7 points.

While Trump trails in most polls, Republicans have a tenuous hold on the Senate. Democrats have hopes of flipping seats in Maine and South Carolina that have long been dominated by Republicans, as well as seats in Arizona, Colorado and Georgia, among others. 

International Business Times will provide election updates throughout the day.
