Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton arrived at the Douglas G. Grafflin Elementary School in Chappaqua, New York, at 8:00 a.m. local time (13:00 GMT) on Tuesday to cast her vote in the US elections. She was accompanied by her husband former US president Bill Clinton.
More than 120 million Americans are expected to cast their ballot for the 45th US president in the 2016 election.
Timings vary for each state: voting got underway in earnest on the East Coast from 11:00 GMT, and will close between midnight and 01:00 GMT on November 9. The earliest possible time the result could be made known is Wednesday at 04:00 GMT.
Clinton holds a slim lead of 2.6 percentage points at 46.9 percent, compared with the 44.3 percent of Republican nominee Donald Trump, according to the latest polls.
Later on Tuesday, Clinton is due to hold an election night event in New York at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Centre, while Trump will hold an election night gathering at the New York Hilton Midtown.
