With less than 24 hours to go until Election day, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are preparing to cross the finish line, as they make their final pleas to voters.
Mr Trump plans to campaign in critical swing states – Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire – with less than 24 hours to go before the big day. Ms Clinton is making her case to white working class voters in Michigan.

One of the nastiest elections in modern US history is almost over. Hundreds of thousands of voters have already made their way to polls and cast their votes for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.
Ms Clinton has a slight edge in the polls, but the real estate real estate magnate has kicked off his five-state blitz in Florida in hopes of closing that gap in critical swing states.
"My only special interest is you," Donald Trump told a crowd of supporters in Florida.
Donald Trump got his Twitter confiscated and Obama destroyed him over itindy100With less than a day to go before the start of one of the biggest presidential votes of recent times, Donald Trump’s campaign aides have taken extra precautions. According to The New York Times, the Republican presidential candidate had his Twitter account ‘wrested’ away from him. Trump tended to get carried away on the social networking platform, with such classic rants as:
Hillary Clinton will make her final pitch to US voters Monday evening during a two-minute ad on NBC and CBS. The ad will air during "The Voice" and "Kevin Can Wait."
"Tonight I'm asking for your vote, and tomorrow let's make history together," Ms Clinton says in the commercial.
She adds: "Our core values are being tested in this election, but everywhere I go people are refusing to be defined by fear and division. Look, we all know we've come through some hard economic times and we've seen some pretty big changes, but I believe in our people."
Donald Trump came under fire over the weekend for his closing ad, criticised for being anti-Semitic.
"Whether intentional or not, the images and rhetoric in this ad touch on subjects that anti-Semites have used for ages. This needs to stop," said Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt on Sunday. "In the final days before the election, tensions are extremely high. It's a time when all candidates need to be especially responsible and bid for votes by offering sincere ideas and policy proposals, not by conjuring painful stereotypes and baseless conspiracy theories."
In the ad, Mr Trump decried "global special interests" and "those who control the levers of power in Washington" alongside images of financier George Soros, Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, and Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein – all of whom are Jewish.
Here's when we'll get our first real sign of who is winning the electionThe IndependentOne day before the 2016 presidential election, both candidates have everything to win - or everything to lose. For all the barbs, insults, policy proposals and scandals, the result will only be known once the voters have cast their ballots and all state polls have closed. Below is a round-up of the most commonly asked questions regarding the exit polls on Tuesday evening.
The US Department of Justice will deploy more than 500 poll watchers across 28 states on Election Day.
While that sounds like a lot, it is only about 60 per cent of those sent out in 2012. The reduction comes following the 2013 ruling by the Supreme Court that essentially gutted the Voting Rights Act. The law gave the DOJ the authority to monitor polling places in jurisdictions covered by the law.
The reduction will lessen the opportunity for DOJ personnel to spot voter irregularities in areas found to have illegally discriminated against voters.
"The bedrock of our democracy is the right to vote, and the Department of Justice works tirelessly to uphold that right not only on Election Day, but every day," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said in a statement. "The department is deeply committed to the fair and unbiased application of our voting rights laws and we will work tirelessly to ensure that every eligible person that wants to do so is able to cast a ballot."
Donald Trump is continuing has attack on music megastars Beyoncé and Jay Z after they appeared at a campaign event for Hillary Clinton on Friday.
"You know the other day, you read where Hillary Clinton called entertainers because she can't get anybody – nobody wants to go [to her rallies]," he said. "Nobody goes to her rallies, so she got Jay Z and Beyoncé, and the language they used was so bad. And as they were singing? Singing, right? Singing. Talking? Was it talking or singing? I don't know. ...
"And isn't it amazing that when Jay Z and Beyoncé use the filthy language that they use, using words that if I ever said those words it would be the reinstitution of the electric chair right?"
The people behind the most accurate poll from 2012 say Donald Trump is going to winDonald Trump could be headed for a shock victory over Hillary Clinton, according to one poll. Mr Trump could beat Ms Clinton by as much as 6 percentage points, according to recent data from the LA Times. Despite many polls suggesting otherwise, the tracking poll has taken to suggesting that Ms Clinton will win the popular vote by a significant margin. That data has shown Mr Trump steadily growing his lead over the last week, since the FBI announcement about its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails on 28 October.
