What happens if the Electoral College is tied between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden?

As Americans wait for all votes in the presidential election to be counted on Wednesday, Democratic candidate Joe Biden has slightly more electoral college votes than incumbent Republican President Donald Trump.
