Joe Biden has won the state of Vermont in the race for the President of the US.
The win was first called by AP, and was a clear-cut victory for Biden, as the state skews heavily toward the Democrat side of the party. Vermont has three electoral votes, with 270 needed to win the presidential race.
Biden won the state with 62.7% of the vote with Trump getting 37.3% of the vote.
Hillary Clinton won Vermont in 2016, leading this to be an expected result for the Democratic nominee.
Vermont is also the state where prominent Democrat Bernie Sanders serves as a Senator.
Votes are still coming in, but Indiana was the first state to be called for Donald Trump.
It was also announced that Trump has won Kentucky.
