Joe Biden wins Maine popular vote, snags 3 of 4 electoral votes

Joe Biden wins Maine popular vote, snags 3 of 4 electoral votes

Joe Biden has claimed at least three of Maine’s four electoral votes, according to an early Wednesday morning call by The Associated Press.

The Democratic candidate was awarded by votes by winning the statewide tally, along with the state’s 1st Congressional District.

Maine’s 2nd Congressional District — representing a single electoral vote — has yet to be called.

Maine and Nebraska are the only states that do not award their electoral votes on a winner-take-all basis.

In 2016, Trump picked up one of Maine’s electoral votes. The remaining three went to Hillary Clinton.
