WASHINGTON: Americans voted Tuesday night (Thailand time; Tuesday in the US) in a nail-biting presidential election marked by the starkly different economic visions of Democratic incumbent Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
NOTE: Americans and friends can watch returns roll in all day Wednesday at the US Embassy's Election Watch room at the Plaza Athenee Hotel. US elections are held state by state. Most US state polls will close between 7am and 11am on Wednesday, Thailand time. Results come in for many hours. In most, but not all US elections, results are clear by mid-afternoon Thailand time.
