President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris handily won the election in New York, but voters in the Hudson Valley were divided on who should serve as the country's commander-in-chief.
Most of the state overwhelmingly chose the challenger over the incumbent; however, the majority of the Hudson Valley was more varied after all the ballots were counted.

Biden flipped four counties Trump won four years ago, and claimed victory in the majority of upstate New York's largest cities. No states went from red to blue during this election.
It took more than a month for the election results to become official, as a record number of mail-in and absentee ballots had to be counted due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
