Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will win at least three electoral votes in Maine, with a win in the 1st Congressional District and in the state as a whole, per Decision Desk HQ.

The state is one of two that divides its electoral votes among congressional districts, and the state’s 2nd Congressional District remains too close to call.

Maine has voted for a Democratic president in six of the last 12 presidential elections and split its electoral votes in 2016. The state is home to competitive down-ballot races in the Senate and Maine’s 2nd Congressional District.

Maine is firmly in Democratic control, with Democrats holding both houses of the state legislature and the governorship. The state’s congressional delegation is split: one Independent, one Republican, and two Democrats. Maine has four electoral votes and is not expected by analysts to be particularly competitive except for its 2nd Congressional District electoral vote.
