Millions of Americans have cast their vote to choose who will become the next US President.

At the end of the day, the election is really close in a number of swing states – which means the votes in those areas could go either way.

The result so far is very tight and at this stage we don’t know who has won.

Trumps looks to have held some of the seats he won at last election, but it is too close to call. The race is extremely tight in the states of Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and North Carolina.

Mr Trump has done better than a lot of experts thought and has won in the large battleground state of Florida.

Usually the result would be announced the day after the election and by now we’d know who has won.

However, things are different this year.

A record number 100 million people decided to do a postal vote – which meant they submitted their choice before the election via the post, instead of voting in person on 3 November.
