Washington, 3rd November: Polling has begun for the 59th presidential election in the United States and there are queues of voters at the polling stations.
Voting for the US presidential election has begun in a small village in the state of New Hampshire near the Canadian border.
Experts predict higher-than-expected turnout this time around, with more than 100 million Americans exercising their right to vote through early voting and mail.
According to the report, 45% of those who cast their ballots are Democrats who support Biden, while 30.5% are Republicans who support Donald Trump.
Experts also say that in addition to Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida, the states of Texas, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan and Minnesota are ‘swing states’, meaning that there is no single candidate and anyone can win which can turn the tide in the election.
Keep in mind that getting more votes does not mean that he will become the presidential candidate because, in the United States, the president is not elected directly by ordinary voters, but by the Electoral College.
The number of members of the Electoral College in each state of the United States is determined by the proportion of its population and the total number of electors is 538.
To become the President of the United States, any candidate would need the support of 270 or more electors out of 538.
