(Newser) – By the AP's count, Joe Biden is just six electoral votes short of the presidency as ballot counting continues in a handful of states. President Trump, meanwhile, continues to dispute that and mount legal challenges about the tally. Notable trends: Biden's lead has been widening in Nevada, and he has shrunk Trump's lead in Georgia and Pennsylvania, reports the Hill. Pennsylvania's secretary of state says "we definitely could" know the state's winner by the end of Thursday, reports NPR. Elsewhere, Trump is shrinking Biden's lead in Arizona, a state that already has been called in Biden's favor by the AP. A look at where things stand as of Thursday afternoon:

  • Nevada (6 electoral college votes): Biden leads here by roughly 11,000 votes, with about 380,000 still to be counted, reports NPR. Biden's lead has been widening as late vote results arrive.
