NEW YORK (AFP) - Republican White House nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday (Nov 8) made a last-minute appeal to voters to turn out, saying the election was "far from over," just a few hours before the first East Coast polling stations close.
Trump was looking to garner 11th hour votes in some key battleground states including Florida - without the Sunshine State, his path to the US presidency is slim at best.
"Don't let up, keep getting out to vote - this election is FAR FROM OVER! We are doing well but there is much time left. GO FLORIDA!" Trump tweeted.
