It's Election Day in the U.S. and millions of voters will head to polling sites across the country to cast their ballot in favor of either President Donald Trump or Democratic challenger Joe Biden.

Poll closing times vary by state. In some states with multiple time zones, polls can close first in the earlier time zones. If you are waiting in line when the polls close, stay in line, because you still have the right to vote. The American Civil Liberties Union has a full list of voting rights here.
