US citizens have gone to the polls to decide if they want Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump to be their next President.

The Democrat and Republican candidates to succeed Barack Obama have racked up some serious miles in the final days of the campaign as they try to win over voters in the swing states.

A week ago, Hillary Clinton was riding a seemingly unassailable lead in the national polls.

But her lead shrank dramatically – it could even be within the margin of error – after the FBI announced they were investigating more emails. But she received a late boost ahead of polling day when she was cleared of any criminal wrongdoing.

Polls on the eve of the elections put Hillary in front, although Trump appeared to have the edge in the key state of Ohio. But only time will tell who Americans have chosen as their next President.
