When a global pandemic led to postal votes becoming the backbone of this presidential election no-one could truly imagine just how key they would be.
With eight states still to declare a winner, the uncounted votes in each could really make the difference between a Trump or Biden White House.
This table shows the amount of votes left in each still to be counted – and in some instances the margins are crucial.
In Pennsylvania – always touted as the state that might alone clinch the result for one candidate or the other – statistics show that Donald Trump has a current lead of around half a million votes.
However, in spite of there only being about 20% of votes left to count, these tally up to a total of more than 1.4 million which leaves a good chance for Joe Biden to flip the state.
And with 20 electoral college votes up for grabs, the ballots left as yet unopened or still sitting in post boxes, really could make a difference there, as well as to the final total.
The scope for a result change in these crucial uncounted ballots is huge.
Joe Biden’s path to 270 electoral college votes
Traditionally a Republican state, Arizona looks like it could flip for just the second time since 1952.
And others he wanted to turn blue – Michigan and Pennsylvania – face severe reporting delays.
Biden’s campaign said they expected to win Wisconsin, Nevada, Michigan and Pennsylvania, out of those states where a result has still yet to be found.
Donald Trump’s path to 270 electoral college votes
The president’s path to power looks tighter.
He holds the lead in Georgia, where the result has been delayed by a burst water pipe in Fulton County (no ballots were damaged), and is expected to win North Carolina, but does still need to win in Pennsylvania.
He would also have to pick up Nevada, Arizona, Wisconsin or Michigan, which are leaning towards Biden at the moment, but still far too close to call.
