ATLANTA — Louise Robinson is living in a political time she thought she left behind.
President Donald Trump has coasted to victory in West Virginia, taking its five electoral votes.
Despite some technical problems, voting in Georgia on Tuesday got off to a mostly smooth start — a marked departure from a June primary that required some voters to wait in line for hours to cast their ballots.
With the North and South Milledgeville, Dunlap and recreation department precincts reporting, Joe Biden leads Donald Trump 33.9% to 63.29%. There were 720 total ballots cast at these precincts.
President Donald Trump has won Alabama, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Tennessee, while Democrat Joe Biden has won Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island.
With nearly all mail-in ballots and 11 of 14 precincts reporting and 17,147 ballots cast, the latest results for Baldwin County:
State Sen. Burt Jones, a republican from Jackson, easily turned away a challenge for his seat from a Macon lawyer who ran as a democrat in Tuesday’s general election.
State Rep. Rick Williams, a republican from Milledgeville, turned back a strong challenge from democrat Quentin T. Howell in Tuesday’s general election to win the Georgia House District 145 seat.
The Associated Press has not declared a winner in Georgia's presidential contest because the race between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden is too early to call, with outstanding ballots left to be counted in counties where Biden has performed well.

While high-profile races in Georgia remained uncertain on the morning after Election Day, voters have overwhelmingly approved two constitutional amendments and one statute on this year’s statewide ballot.
ATLANTA — Georgia’s top elections official said Wednesday he expects counties to have “every legal ballot” counted by the end of the day.
The Associated Press is not calling the presidential race yet because neither candidate has secured the 270 electoral college votes needed for victory.
The outcome in several contested states will determine whether Joe Biden defeats President Donald Trump. But if the Democratic challenger wins, the ambitions of a Biden presidency could well come down to Georgia.
ATLANTA — As President Donald Trump and his supporters watched his lead over Democrat Joe Biden decrease in Georgia, Republicans placed blame on the election itself.
