Donald Trump is expected to hold his election night celebration at his Trump International hotel in Washington, although there has been some talk of moving the festivities to the White House.
Joe Biden will be in Delaware and plans to address the country from the Chase Center, the same location where he formally accepted his party’s nomination in August.

In Pennsylvania, small-town Trump defectors are rare — but could be decisive
It’s hard to find a man like Victor Dennis in this evenly divided, deeply polarized, heavily courted corner of the county that most precisely mirrored President Donald Trump’s statewide victory here in 2016.
All but a relative handful of voters in this small Northampton County town, 75 miles due west of the Statue of Liberty and 20 miles northeast of Allentown, have voted — or will vote — the same way that they did four years ago. There isn’t much room for a change of heart in the town or in a county that Trump won 50 percent to 46 percent four years ago.
That’s what makes voters like Dennis, 91, only a little more common than dragon-riding leprechauns. But the race is so tight here, and across the state, that just a small number of crossover voters could make the difference.
“First time in my life, I voted for a Democrat,” Dennis, a longtime resident of Forks who now lives in a retirement community in nearby Nazareth, told NBC News on Friday after he finished packing groceries into his car in a strip mall parking lot. “I like a lot of the things Trump did, but I couldn’t stand his bloviating.”
Election experts say that the result in Pennsylvania is most likely to determine which candidate wins the presidency. This region, with its mix of bedroom communities for New York and Philadelphia, a health care economy that rivals its historical manufacturing base, and rural stretches dotted with small towns, is one of the most heavily contested in the country.

Trump knocks Biden and Obama’s Flint appearance
Biden & Obama owe a massive apology to the People of Flint. The water was poisoned on their watch. Not only did they fail them, Biden proudly accepted the endorsement of disastrous Gov Rick Snyder! Unlike Biden, I will always stand with the People of the Great State of MICHIGAN!

Barack Obama and Joe Biden campaigned in Flint, Michigan, on Saturday, appearing together for the first time on the trail just three days before Election Day.
Obama introduced Biden at the drive in rally, hitting similar themes that he has touched on in past campaign speeches.
