Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton cast their ballots on Tuesday in the United States Presidential elections 2016.

After casting his vote, he quipped to reporters that it was a ‘tough decision’ to make his voting choice.

“It’s looking very good. Right now it’s looking very good. It will be an interesting day. Thank you,” he said.

When asked whether he would concede if the election were called for Clinton, he said, “We’ll see what happens.”

Outside the polling station, some people shouted ‘New York hates you!’

“I’m so happy, I'm just incredibly happy,” said Clinton as she emerged from the polling station, shaking hands, chatting with her supporters amid chants of ‘Madam President’.

Trump also said that if he is defeated by Clinton, it would be a ‘tremendous waste of money, energy and time’.
