Trump urges voters in key swing states to vote early
Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio are so-called swing states and the results in these key battleground areas could sway the election results.
Polls for in-person voting are due to open on Tuesday morning but a little more than 94 million people around the country have already voted early, an official said.
The voting of 94 million was according to the United States Elections Project, a turnout-tracking database created by a professor from the University of Florida, who specialises in United States elections.
This unprecedented number of early votes is due in large part to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic and the need to maintain social distancing on election day.
Some United States states, such as Florida and Louisiana, ended in-person early voting in the week before the election.
But a handful of states have opted to end in-person early voting on the day before the election.
Mail-in ballots must be post-marked and sent by the day of the election, but many states will count ballots that arrive after election day as long as they are correctly post-marked, meaning that the election results may not be immediately apparent on Tuesday evening.
