Tens of millions of Americans set out on Tuesday, Election Day, to cast their ballots in the contentious presidential election, most for either Republican nominee Donald Trump or his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
By midnight, Trump was ahead of Clinton with a few battleground states still in play: Nevada, New Hampshire, Michigan and Pennsylvania among them.
Many voters had ventured into classrooms and places of worship, having waited minutes or hours in lines that snaked out the doors and along sidewalks or city streets.
A smaller majority, however, found themselves at ballot boxes in a variety of odd locations. Here, after all the polls had closed, is a selection of some of the weirdest polling stations across the country: from a laundromat in Chicago and a garage in Philadelphia to a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles and a Ford dealership in Ohio.
