Voting Begins in the US

Voting for the historic US Presidential election has beun in all parts of the United States. The citizens of America are voting in electors to the electoral college, who would in turn vote for the President and Vice President on December 15, 2008.

Alrady, Sen. Barack Obama has voted in Illinois. Sen. Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton have also voted. As for the few results that are out, Dixville Notch, NH, a little town, voted for Obama, breaking their forty-year old Republican bias.

Voting began at around 5:30 PM IST (IST is UTC+5:30) and will go on for several hours more. However, by early morning in India tomorrow, the final results would be out.

Then, unless soemthing goes wrong (and it has before), the electors would elect the candidate who won the popular vote as the next President.
