LIVE: ABC News Election Coverage

Election Night Network Coverage from ABC News.

**LATEST: Donald Trump is projected to win Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina, and Hillary Clinton is projected to win Massachusetts, New Jersey, Washington D.C., Maryland, Delaware, Illinois and Rhode Island.

The 2016 election is coming to a close and almost 100 million people are expected to cast their ballots at polling places across the country by the end of the day.

The first state polls closed at 7 p.m. E.T. and projections have been rolling in since then. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump made brief public appearances this morning when they voted in their respective districts in New York, but they have largely been behind closed doors for the rest of the day.

Trump’s struggles with female voters appears to be showing through exit poll analysis, which is subject to change, as 43 percent of women say that they would be scared if Trump were elected compared to 31 percent of men.

Trump supporters are focused on terrorism and immigration, while Clinton supporters highlighted their focus on the economy and foreign policy, according to exit poll analysis.

When asked specifically about immigration, 71 percent of exit poll respondents said that undocumented immigrants should be given a path to citizenship, while only 21 percent said they should be deported.

More respondents opposed Trump’s much-touted proposal to build a wall along the southern border of the U.S. in an effort to curb illegal immigration, with 54 percent saying they were against the wall with only 40 percent supporting it.

Both Clinton and Trump are holding what they plan to be victory parties later this evening in New York City, about 20 blocks apart.
