Americans are making their choice between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, selecting a leader to steer a nation battered by a surging pandemic that has killed more than 231,000 people and cost millions their jobs. Nearly 100 million Americans voted early. Biden entered Tuesday with multiple paths to victory. Trump had a narrower but still feasible road to clinch 270 Electoral College votes, news agency AP reported.

Republicans are fighting to retain their Senate majority against a surge of Democratic challengers across a vast political map in states once considered long shots for Democrats. Trump says he’s planning an aggressive legal strategy to try to prevent Pennsylvania from counting mailed ballots that are received in the three days after Tuesday's election. 

The Supreme Court of India today adjourned hearing on a batch of pleas seeking a waiver of interest charged by banks on equated monthly instalments during the Reserve Bank's six-month loan moratorium period on Centre's request. The SC bench will now take up the case on November 5.

In Uttar Pradesh, the BJP, which has a comfortable majority in the Assembly, is locked in a battle of prestige on seven seats, six of which it had won in the last election. The seventh one was with the Samajwadi Party. In Gujarat, the bypolls are being held in eight seats after the Congress MLAs resigned ahead of the Rajya Sabha polls in June this year. Five of them later joined the ruling BJP and are contesting again. Assembly bypolls will also be held in Chhattisgarh (1 seat), Haryana (1), Jharkhand (2), Karnataka (2), Nagaland (2), Odisha (2) and Telangana (1).
