Election day was on Tuesday, November 3, but two days later America is still waiting to find out who will be their next President come 2021.
Though Joe Biden was six electoral votes away from claiming the Presidency on the evening of November 5, Nevada, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Georgia are still counting mail-in ballots.
Winning Nevada, where Joe Biden held a narrow lead, would put the Democrat over the threshold needed to win the White House, but the counting of mail-in ballots seemed to stretch on forever, with no end in sight.
For many Twitter users, the anxiety became so great that they threatened to travel to Nevada and start counting ballots themselves.
