The conclusion of a contentious presidential campaign cycle comes to an end Tuesday as the U.S. selects a commander in chief for at least the next four years.

Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden face off in the race to achieve 270 electoral votes.

Both campaigns insisted they had a pathway to victory, though Biden’s options for winning the required 270 Electoral College votes were more plentiful. Trump was banking on a surge of enthusiasm from his most loyal supporters in addition to potential legal maneuvers.

The momentum from early voting carried into Election Day, as an energized electorate produced long lines at polling sites throughout the country.

Voters braved worries of the coronavirus, threats of polling place intimidation and expectations of long lines caused by changes to voting systems, but appeared undeterred as turnout appeared it would easily surpass the 139 million ballots cast four years ago.
