In the early morning hours of Wednesday, Democrat Joe Biden announced that "we believe we're on track to win this election," stressing to his supporters that "it ain't over till every vote is counted, every ballot is counted. But we're feeling good about where we are." In his brief speech, Biden specifically cited having confidence in the yet-to-be-called but likely decisive states of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, and alluded to Fox News' controversial early call of Arizona in the Democrat's favor as well. "We knew this was going to go long, but who knew we were going to go into maybe tomorrow morning, maybe even longer," Biden said. The Electoral College map remains up for grabs as of 12:45 a.m. on Wednesday morning, with the key states of Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, and North Carolina still undecided by The New York Times' count.

A single voting machine jammed for just minutes Tuesday morning at a precinct in Joe Biden’s hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania -- but misleading posts on Facebook and Twitter claimed multiple machines there were down for hours.Pennsylvania emerged as a hot spot for online misinformation on Election Day. Facebook and Twitter scrambled to take down false posts about polling locations in Scranton, Philadelphia and beyond to minimize the spread of misinformation and prevent it from sowing doubt about the election process.Misleading claims about voting in the key battleground state were shared thousands of times on Facebook and Twitter — even reaching their way to the Twitter feed of the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr.“The fact that we are unlikely to know the result of that pivotal race tonight means that any incidents will receive disproportionate attention because there won’t be a resolution to the race,” said Emerson Brooking, a disinformation fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, a Washington think-tank .Results in the closely watched state might be delayed because of the surge of mail-in ballots this year, even though that delay doesn’t indicate a problem with the vote.Conservative social-media influencers and websites spread a video purporting to show voting machine outages in the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple throughout the late afternoon and evening. In fact, just one machine had only briefly been jammed and was restored within minutes Tuesday morning, Lackawanna County spokesman Joseph D’Arienzo said.Twitter and Facebook also removed a false post from an Instagram user who claimed to be discarding hundreds of ballots cast for Trump while working at a polling place in Erie County.“The person making the statements does not work in any way with Erie County or have any part of Erie County’s election process,” the Erie County Board of Elections Chair Carl J. Anderson III said in a statement. “In fact, the individual is not a registered voter and is not believed to be a resident of Erie County, Pa."Facebook said it confirmed with authorities that the claims were inaccurate and was working on removing the posts. Twitter removed screenshots and short videos of the claim, which was originally posted on Instagram by the person claiming to be a poll worker, though not before it gained some traction on the platform, including a retweet from Trump Jr.Twitter also took action on several tweets from the @PhillyGOP account, which is run by the Republican Party of Philadelphia, and at least four from the Trump campaign's director of Election Day operations, Mike Roman.One of the misleading tweets was a photo of a poster endorsing Democratic candidates that was hung on the building of a polling site in northeast Philadelphia. The image was shared more than 10,000 times with Twitter users saying it was a “violation” of election laws.Not so, said the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, which tweeted in response that the polling place is “located in an interior room and the sign in question is further than 10 feet from it.”Before Election Day even started, Pennsylvania seemed poised for an onslaught of misinformation. In October, the state was mentioned the most — more than 200,000 times — in misleading claims of voter fraud on websites and social media platforms, according to data collected by media intelligence firm Zignal Labs.More misinformation is likely to pop up as the outcome of the race is being determined in battleground states like Arizona and Wisconsin, said Cindy Otis, the vice-president of analysis for the Alethea Group, a firm that investigates disinformation.“I think we will see additional claims much like the Pennsylvania ones being made about those states as well,” Otis said.___Seitz reported from Chicago.

Trump has repeatedly claimed, without offering evidence, that allowing the ballots to be counted will lead to widespread voter fraud. He took it a step further Monday night in a tweet that was flagged by Twitter for possibly containing misleading information, claiming that the decision will “induce violence in the streets.” While former Republican senator Rick Santorm defended Trump, along with Republican efforts to limit vote counts in multiple states, Anderson Cooper, Van Jones and Gloria Borger weren’t having it.
