Voting is still on in United States of America, the most divisive presidential election in decades.

The incumbent US President, Donald Trump of the Republican Party, is up against his Democratic challenger Joe Biden.

So far, the first polls opened from 05:00 EST (10:00 GMT) in Vermont, BBC reports.US Election

At the moment, the country is on course for its highest turnout in a century with Nearly 100 million people who have already cast their ballots in early voting.

Meanwhile, both rivals have 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.

Voters decide state-level contests rather than an overall single national one in the US election.

Among the first swing states to begin election-day voting on Tuesday are the key battlegrounds of North Carolina and Ohio (11:30 GMT), followed half an hour later by Florida, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan and Wisconsin. Arizona will follow at 13:00 GMT.
