As someone outside of the US, I'm finding it a little hard to interpret the results from the current election tracker widget that google is using to display the election results.
When the graph is showing 'Electoral Votes', is this describing the 'Electoral College Votes' that ultimately decides the winning presidential candidate?

Yes: Electoral Votes is another way of saying votes in the
Electoral College. The Electoral College is the collection of people who select the next President; an Electoral Vote refers to the actual vote they hold (and then, cast). A state is referred to as having so many Electoral Votes, generally, with the word "college" omitted.
