10 Second Trivia. To win an election, a U.S. presidential candidate needs at least how many electoral votes? 538. 435. 270 or 101. There are 538 electors in total so a majority of 270 is needed to win the election.

10秒快速问答。要赢得选举,美国总统候选人至少需要多少选举人票?538票,435票,270票还是101票?总共有538名选举人,因此至少需要270票才能赢得选举。

And it's projecting that winner that's a key part of our election night coverage but there may be some additional challenges to doing that this year and a big one is mail-in voting. There's been some controversy over this as we reported on our August 20th show. There's also been more interest in it this time around because many Americans are concerned about catching coronavirus in public polling places.

预测获胜者是我们选举之夜报道的关键部分,但今年要做到这一点可能会有一些额外的挑战,其中一个大的挑战就是邮寄投票。正如我们在8月20日的节目中报道的那样,关于这个问题存在一些争议。这一次也有更多的人对此感兴趣,因为很多美国人担心在公共投票场所感染冠状病毒。

However, people feel about mail-in ballots though, several states don't require them to be received and counted by election day. So if the election is close and if millions of ballots are still in the mail when the polls close on November 3rd, we may not know the outcome for days possibly weeks.

然而,人们对邮寄选票,有几个州不要求在选举日收到并清点选票。所以即使选举即将来临,如果在11月3日投票结束时仍有数百万张选票在邮寄,我们可能几天甚至几周都不知道结果。

Still, news networks across America are gearing up for the event that's 20 days away. Here's a look at how CNN plans to propose projections.

尽管如此,美国各地的新闻网络仍在为20天后的盛会做准备。下面来看看CNN如何提出预测。
