Vermonters celebrate at the bottom of Burlington's Church Street shortly after Saturday's announcement that Joe Biden has won the presidency.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has been elected the 46th president of the United States. Vote tallies in several swing states were slow amid an unprecedented surge in mail-in ballots. After a contentious election and days of waiting, the states of Pennsylvania and Nevada were called for Biden on Saturday. This hour, we share reactions and reflections on the news of the election of Joe Biden.

Our guests are:

  • Bob Kinzel, VPR's senior political reporter
  • Linda Fowler, professor of government at Dartmouth College

  • Lisa Holmes, a UVM associate professor specializing in American judicial politics
