  1. Biden projected to win Colorado

    Graphic card

    Democrat Joe Biden is projected to win Colorado. It’s a swing state and key election battleground. It was won by Hillary Clinton in 2016, and twice by Barack Obama, after a period of nearly 40 years when it voted mostly Republican.

    And a quick reminder of what we mean when we say projections. Ongoing ballot counts are being used to predict - or project - the winner of each state and the nationwide vote. A state will not be projected as being won by a candidate, however, until enough data has been collected to declare a clear winner. That includes months of polling, exit polls on the day and some of the actual votes counted.

    This year the BBC gets its data from polling firm Edison Research who do the field work for the exit polls and work with US networks in the National Election Pool.

    Fox News is projecting that Democrat John Hickenlooper has unseated Republican incumbent Cory Gardner for US Senate.

    The Colorado race marks the first flip of a Senate seat: Republican to Democrat.

    Hickenlooper was Colorado's governor from 2011 to 2019, and mounted a brief bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

    This Senate race matters. Republicans hold a thin three-seat advantage in the chamber, and there are 35 seats up for election tonight. A win in Colorado brings the Democrats one step closer to flipping the Senate.

    We have more about the key Senate races to watch.
