Biden leads Trump with 51 per cent of the vote and more than 2.5 million ballots cast.

Arizona has historically been a Republican stronghold, but Biden’s bid to flip the state was boosted by a growing voter-age Latino population and residents moving from California to Arizona.

Arizona is the only state to flip from Republican to Democrat support so far.

Biden has a narrow electoral lead with 238 votes compared to 213 for Trump, both candidates need 270 votes to win.
