With several states still too close to call as of early Thursday morning, the Trump campaign has lawsuits filed in Georgia, Pennsylvania and Michigan, and is seeking a recount in Wisconsin. It's also expected to announce a lawsuit in Nevada Thursday morning.
WHEN WILL WE KNOW WHO WON THE ELECTION?
Here is a breakdown of what is happening with the lawsuits in those states.
The Trump campaign has launched a multipronged attack in Pennsylvania, alleging various procedural violations.
Trump campaign attorney Justin Clark said the campaign was suing to stop elections officials in Pennsylvania from what they characterize as "hiding the ballot counting and processing from our Republican poll observers."
Clark said that in Philadelphia and elsewhere elections officials had forced their elections watchers to stand 25-plus feet away to observe the counting process.

This is in addition to another lawsuit the campaign filed Wednesday against Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar and 67 county election boards. This lawsuit centers on a guidance letter Boockvar sent out Nov. 1 “contradicting the Election Code.” “This new flagrant attack on the legislature’s authority was sent to every county in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit claims the letter “re-writes the Election Code” by “resetting the deadline for absentee and mail-in voters to provide missing proof of identification” to the sixth day after the end of canvassing, which is Nov. 12, while the Pennsylvania Election Code says the deadline is “the sixth day following the election,” which the campaign notes is Nov. 9. People who do not provide proof of identification in time are to have their ballots discarded.
