As early voters in the US presidential elections throng to polling booths, social media has been flooded with pictures and videos of people enduring long lines to cast their vote.

According to a BBC report, voter turnout is expected to hit a record high with many voting early, a system which has been put in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Pictures and social media showed long queues and voters waiting for hours to cast their ballot.

According to a CNN report, voting centres at Georgia, Atlanta and Texas saw heavy turnouts.
