How to watch as the presidential election results come in between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, beginning at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.

Election Day 2020 is here. On Tuesday, voters will finish casting their ballots in the presidential election between former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump, as well as in a number of down ballot races between Democrats and Republicans across the country.

Monday saw the candidates as well as their running mates, Sen. Kamala Harris and current Vice President Mike Pence, as well as surrogates like former President Barack Obama, stump in key 2020 swing states in their final opportunity to mobilize voters before the election.

When the polls close, the last thing left to do will be to wait and watch for the election night results -- however much we may know as states prepare to count more mail-in and early ballots than ever due to the coronavirus pandemic. Here's how you can watch all the election results live as they happen, be it on television or streaming online.
