Biden Sets New Record for Most Votes Accumulated by a Candidate
As the final ballots continue to be counted across the nation, Joe Biden has officially broken the record, previously set by Barack Obama, and become the Presidential Candidate to accumulate the most votes in US history.
The previous record of most votes accumulated was set by Obama in 2008 with a record of 69,498,516. The former Vice President's tally is currently at 70,055,711 with several precincts still counting ballots. Trump is also nearing Obama's old record with over 67 million votes accumulated thus far.
The new record is, in large part, due to the historic turnout in the 2020 election. The 2020 election is on track to have the highest voter turnout rate in over 100 years.
