Americans across the United States took to the streets in a joyous celebration, following the news that Democratic nominee Joe Biden has won the 2020 U.S. Election.

In Los Angeles, a march is taking place to help enforce the results of the election, since Donald Trump is refusing to concede to Biden, and instead is looking to challenge the result in court.

After polls originally closed on Nov. 3, Americans and people all over the world waited in anticipation for a nominee to secure 270 electoral votes. Biden has now accomplished that feat to become the 46th president of the United States, along Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, who is the first in the role to be either a woman, Black or Asian American.

Following a historic U.S. election — where more people voted than ever before — Americans look ready to celebrate what could be a promising new chapter for their country.
