CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.J. — In a few months’ time, the United States will have a new leader.
Former Vice President Joe Biden was elected as the nation’s 46th President last week, according to projections by the vast majority of big-time news outlets and networks. The Associated Press’ tally of the election has Biden on 290 electoral votes — beyond the requirement of 270 to win — and Trump at 214. On December 14, each state’s electors will cast their votes, and those results will be officially certified on January 6 of next year. That will pave the way for Biden to be inaugurated and sworn into office at noon on January 20.
