WASHINGTON (AP) — Election officials in key battlegrounds are pressing forward with vote counting, two days after Election Day.

Democrat Joe Biden is urging patience, while President Donald Trump is pursuing legal options, insisting the processing of ballots should be stopped.

Biden appears to be pushing closer to winning the presidency, while Trump's path to reelection has become very narrow though still possible. Trump needs victories in all four of the remaining battlegrounds: Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Nevada.

Biden has won the fiercely contested prizes of Michigan and Wisconsin, part of the “blue wall” that slipped away from Democrats four years ago.
