President Trump takes Ohio in a close race against Vice President Joe Biden. Trump won 53.4% of the votes while Biden won 45.2% of the votes. Trump takes 18 electoral college votes.

According to the New York Times, Ohio has chosen the presidential winner since 1944 with exceptions of 1960 with Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy. Obama won Ohio in 2008 and 2012, while Trump won Ohio in 2016.

Trump has won Ohio again, yet it is still undetermined who will win the overall presidential election. 90% of the estimated vote total has been reported. 

Ohio did not have senators running in this election, however, Ohio’s House of Representatives races resulted in all 16 incumbents winning re-election. Republican representatives hold the majority for Ohio 12-4. 

Ohio is allowing mail-in ballots to be counted if they arrive by November 13 with no additional results being reported until a week and a half after the election. Statewide results may not be fully reported from Ohio until November 28, 2020.
