Countdown to November 8 Ends: We’re Finally Here

This 7-day series on the “Countdown to November 8” has proven how much can happen in just one week, and that the tide can change any way, even in just a few hours, just as it can right now. With polls open since 6 AM, the American people flock to local polling booths to choose their next president, one of the most influential positions in the world as a whole today.

According to latest news updates and live coverage of the US elections, Hillary Clinton and Tom Kaine have just cast their ballots in expectation and hope for a Clinton victory, while McMullin voters flock to the booths in fervent hope to secure the 270 electoral college votes needed, especially in Utah, to get closer to the two leading candidates. Clinton and Trump have seen their polls rise and fall dramatically over the past several days, but the gap between them is slowly narrowing down, according to live election polls’ data from online sources. With just a few hours left, Americans hope and pray to declare victory alongside the best candidate who would serve the country most efficiently, wisely and successfully, not just as a result of having to succumb to voting for the “lesser of two evils”. This election is much more than a cliché; it is a reality capable of profoundly impacted millions, if not billions of lives worldwide.

Good luck, America.
