The candidates for the 2016 presidential election have each made their way to the polls this morning to cast their ballots. After late night rallies held by both Trump and Clinton, they are back at it early to finish off the final stretch of the 2016 election campaign.
Clinton votes in Chappaqua
Hillary Clinton was up early to cast a ballot in her hometown of Chappaqua, N.Y. Her polling station was the Douglas G. Grafflin Elementary School and she was surrounded by supporters and media as her and husband Bill Clinton went in to vote. After voting she made a quick five minute trip from the polling station to her house to do interviews with the media.
Clinton's running mate Sen. Tim Kaine has also voted already this morning. Kaine along with his wife Anne Holton, were at their Richmond, Virginia polling station bright and early to cast their votes at 6 AM. Clinton and her campaign staff will be in New York City for the rest of the day. They will be joined by supporters at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center as the election results roll in.
Trump in Manhattan to vote
Donald Trump along with his wife Melania cast their ballots at 11 AM this morning. His polling station was at Public School 59 in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. He was met with a mix of cheers and boos as he entered the school to vote.
Trump will be at a Hilton Hotel in Midtown Manhattan along with his staff for Election Day awaiting the results.
Both candidates in NYC for election night
Both candidates will be in New York City just a couple of miles apart as the nation waits for the results of this hard fought election to come in. This has resulted in a heightened security presence throughout the city and the closure of some roads. It marks the first time that both presidential candidates have been in New York City the night of the election since 1944.
