The US presidential election campaign has drawn to a close, with final pitches by the two rivals in swing states.
National polls suggest President Barack Obama and his challenger, Republican nominee Mitt Romney, are running neck and neck. Mr Romney began the final day of campaigning in Sanford, Florida.
Romney supporters of all ages turned out at the rally in Florida. Democrats have filed a legal case demanding an extension of time available for early voting in the state, citing unprecedented demand.
After the rally in Florida Mr Romney headed to Virginia, then New Hampshire and Ohio.
In New Hampshire, where he began his campaign 18 months ago, Mitt Romney urged supporters to "walk with me" and get people out to vote.
President Obama flew to Madison, Wisconsin, for a rally, appearing on the stage with singer and supporter Bruce Springsteen.
President Obama told supporters: "You know I'll fight for you and your families every single day as hard as I know how."
The president was embraced, applauded and cheered by supporters before heading to Iowa and Ohio.
Barack Obama's last rally was in Des Moines, Iowa. It was held just outside Obama's first headquarters during the 2008 campaign, where his first march to the White House started.
Among the very first to vote were 10 registered voters of the small village of Dixville Notch, New Hampshire, who cast their ballots moments after midnight.
Far from the swing states crucial to the US presidential election, Kenyan witch doctor John Dimo sits outside his hut in the village of Kogelo where President Obama's father came from. Examining bones, shells and other items, he predicted a favourable result for the president.
