As Americans troop out today to decide the winner of the 2020 US Election, incumbent Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden are in a closer race in states that decide final outcome.
Polls have opened in the east of the country after a long and bitter campaign amid the coronavirus pandemic, The BBC reports.
More than 100 million people have already cast their ballots in early voting, putting the country on course for its highest turnout in a century.
Both rivals spent the final hours of the race rallying in key swing states.
National polls give a firm lead to Mr Biden, but it is a closer race in the states that could decide the outcome.
Both candidates are using the day as an opportunity to drive home the messages they have been hammering to voters for the last few weeks.
Mr Trump, sounding a little hoarse, spoke to Fox News by phone, saying he felt good about his chances of victory and predicting he would win “big” in key states such as Florida and Arizona.
“I think we have a really solid chance of winning,” he said. Asked when he would declare victory, he added: “When there’s victory. If there’s victory… there’s no reason to play games.”
Joe Biden visited his hometown of Scranton in Pennsylvania – a key swing state – and addressed a crowd there, saying: “We’ve got to restore the backbone to this country. The middle class built this country – Wall Street didn’t.”
