Although four days have elapsed since the US presidential election was held on Tuesday, it is yet to be declared who is going to lead the country in the next four years.
Such a delay may normally look unusual, but it is not unprecedented in the history of the United States. The US already witnessed some elections that had taken much more time to reach a result.
In the presidential election of 2020, the authorities took a total of 35 days to declare a result.
The winner, George W Bush, was decided by the Supreme Court - the only time this has happened, reports BBC.
On Election Day, 7 November, Democrat Al Gore won the popular vote, but things were closer in the Electoral College. Everything hinged on how Florida doled out its 25 electoral votes.
The race was close enough to trigger a recount. Gore's team asked for four counties to do that by hand, prompting an appeal by the Bush camp.
Weeks later, on 12 December, the Supreme Court ruled in favour of Bush along party lines 5-4, sending him to the White House.
And at the risk of scaring you all, Bush-Gore wasn't even the longest wait.
The 1876 election took just shy of four months to finalise - currently the US record.
That election was held on 7 November and the result wasn't decided until 2 March 1877, only a few days before inauguration.
Republican Rutherford Hayes was declared the winner by one electoral college vote over Democrat Samuel Tilden, after a bi-partisan committee was brought in to sort it out.
