Democrat Joe Biden has taken the lead in Georgia over President Donald Trump as vote counting continues. The Democrat now leads with a little more than 900 votes separating the candidates after about five million votes were cast in the state.

The Associated Press has not declared a winner in Georgia because the race remains too early to call. State officials say fewer than 8,200 absentee ballots remain to be counted, and as many as 8,900 ballots unreturned by military and overseas voters could arrive Friday. Georgia voters whose ballots encountered problems must act by day's end to fix them.
