The 2020 election is one for the books in more than one way. Voters by the millions turned out to shatter the previous turnout record. About 150 million ballots were collected. Biden won by 75 million, which is the highest total for a presidential candidate. Trump had 70 million, a record for a losing candidate. About 62 percent of the eligible population voted, an increase of 0.4 percentage points from 2008. By state, Hawaii, Montana, and Vermont saw significant rises in voter turnout, due to relaxed mail-in voting rules and extra voting time. The increased turnout created new battleground states in Texas, Arizona, and Georgia.
