Washington, Nov 6 (Canadian-Media): Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has pulled ahead of President Trump in Georgia, a state with 16 electoral votes where a win would bring him to 269, or within one electoral vote of the presidency, media reports said.

Biden's edge over the U.S. President Donald Trump in the battleground states of Georgia and Pennsylvania has pushed Biden closer to the White House hours after Trump falsely claimed the election was being "stolen" from him.
Biden edged into the lead in Georgia, which has 16 electoral votes, with more than 900 votes early Friday morning. In Pennsylvania, which has 20 electoral votes, Biden cut Trump's lead to just over 18,000.
As absentee ballots were counted early Friday particularly in the Atlanta suburb of Clayton County, Biden pulled ahead with 917 more votes.
