It is Election Day in the United States, and the American people are choosing their next Commander in Chief. At the end of the day on November 8, either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will become the 45th President of the nation.
The elections come after a long campaign by both candidates shrouded in controversy. The Democrat Hillary Clinton starred in a national security scandal after thousands of her personal emails leaked online, while the Republican Donald Trump has been the subject of sexual harassment accusations.
Now, the voting booths are about to close, and the results are starting to come in. To keep track of what is going on both at a state level and nationally, here are a couple of places you can tune in to follow these historical U.S. Presidential Elections.
