    A voter casts an early ballot at Madison Square Gardens in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, US, 26 October 2020.

    The US presidential election, in which current President Donald Trump is facing Democrat nominee Joe Biden, is set for 3 November. Early voting has already started in some states.

    More than 60 million Americans have already cast early ballots in the US presidential election scheduled for 3 November, data from the US Elections Project showed on 26 October. Of those, more than 40 million votes were cast via mail-in ballots. Nearly 20 million people turned up in masks for early in-person voting that got underway in New York and other states on 25 October, weeks after mailed-in ballots began trickling in.

    Social and mainstream media were flooded with pictures and videos of people allegedly queueing for hours to vote.
