US Election 2020: Americans troop out to cast their votes

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden would know where they stand today as citizens of the United States roll out to vote their favourite candidate.

Voting started early on Tuesday to either choose a new President in Joe Biden or stick with Donald Trump for his second term.

The 2020 US Presidential election is much different than previous elections owing to people being nervous about the country’s future amid nearly 8 per cent unemployment and more than 231,000 COVID-19 deaths.

The country is more divided and angry than at any time since the Vietnam War era of the 1970s — and fears that Trump could dispute the result of the election are only fueling those tensions.

Despite an often startlingly laid-back campaign, Biden, 77, leads in almost every opinion poll, buoyed by his consistent message that America needs to restore its “soul” and get new leadership in the midst of a coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 231,000 people.

President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden have gone on full-scale attack on each other as the D-Day nears.

With a huge expansion in mail-in voting to safeguard against the Covid-19 pandemic, nearly 100 million people have already cast ballots, highlighting the passion in what is turning into a referendum on the norm-shattering Republican’s first term.

Voting will also be different this time as the coronavirus pandemic grapples with the whole world – the most affected country being the US with over 9 million infections.
