US Elections 2016 LIVE: First polls close as Americans pick between Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump after brutal campaign
Millions of Americans on Tuesday lined up at polling stations to elect either the country's first woman president in its 240-year history or a political outsider in the White House as the race between Hillary Clinton and her rival Donald Trump remains too close to call. Here are all the LIVE updates:-
First polls close
Polls began to close in the long and bitter race for the White House between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump on Tuesday, with last-minute opinion polls giving Clinton the edge in the final hours of the race.
Polls in the Eastern time zones of Indiana and Kentucky were the first to close, and a flood of vital battleground states such as Virginia, North Carolina and Ohio - where polls were due to close in the next 90 minutes - would provide initial clues of the possible winner.
May not go quietly into the night if I lose: Trump
US presidency hopeful Donald Trump has in another fierce statement declared that he will not go quietly into the night if the poll results are against him.
In an interview on Tuesday, Trump said, "I`ll have to see under what circumstances. I want everything to be really, really smooth and really, really good. I understand the importance of that. I was very good in history. It`s largely a rigged system and you see it at the polling booths too.
"He added that "hopefully" he won`t be put in a position where he`ll feel the need to contest the election, reports the Guardian.
'This election is far from over'
Donald Trump writes on Twitter, "Don't let up, keep getting out to vote - this election is FAR FROM OVER! We are doing well but there is much time left. GO FLORIDA!"
