A dizzying, whipsaw night keeps America, and the world beyond, transfixed
The world is holding its breath. Inside the United States and far beyond it, people are waiting for an electoral verdict that will not only count as the most momentous in recent American history, but will affect the entire planet for years to come.
Election night brought no resolution, let alone catharsis. Instead it involved long, anxious hours as even those with no vote and living many thousands of miles away messaged friends about early voting patterns in Florida or the volume of mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania. This felt like one election where the entire human race had skin in the game.
Though most people will probably be watching the results of the race for the White House, there are more than 7,000 elections taking place across the US on Tuesday 3 November.
