Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton cast her vote earlier today in Chappaqua, New York as she bids to become the next president of the United States.

A Clinton campaign official told NBC News: "We are feeling confident about the campaign we've run and our candidate's message to the American people. Looking forward to seeing what today brings."

The mood was "jubilant on the flight home last night after an incredible day," the official added.

Outgoing vice-president Joe Biden cast his vote in Wilmington, Delaware earlier this morning as well. 

Republican candidate Donald Trump has yet to vote but he confirmed in an interview with "Fox & Friends" that he will vote for himself.

“Well, I’ve really worked on this hard,” Trump joked, “but I have made that final decision, yes. I’ve decided to vote for Trump,” he announced.

Early and absentee voting has been higher this year than in any other election particularly among the Hispanic demographic. 

The New York Times has noted that the number of Hispanics who have voted in Florida already is higher than their entire turnout four years ago.
