After months of campaigning, it is now up to voters to decide President of the United States for the next four years.
FOX News Radio’s Mike Majchrowitz and Jeff Monosso have more in this Election Update:
From America’s Election Headquarters, I’m Mike Majchrowitz at the Chicago Election Night Obama-Biden Headquarters.
President Obama kept his schedule light today. Making a surprise visit to the Chicago campaign field office to thank his volunteers.
(Obama) “These incredible folks who are working so hard, making phone calls, making sure people get out to vote.”
The President also did a series of satellite TV interviews in battleground states. Tonight he comes here to Chicago’s McCormick Place center to either claim a second term or concede defeat. Now here’s FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso at Romney Headquarters in Boston.
A very confident Mitt Romney, following a vote in suburban Boston, continues the fight in two battle ground states in the final hours of his campaign, Ohio and Pennsylvania where he’s pushing for last minute support, stopping by restaurants, shaking hands and thanking countless volunteers who worked the Governor’s massive ground game before he comes back here to watch the polls close across the country.

With polls showing such a close race between President Obama and Mitt Romney, all eyes are on swing states this Election Day.
FOX News Radio’s Jessica Rosenthal and Eben Brown take a look at two critical battleground states.
I’m Jessica Rosenthal in Columbus, Ohio, a swing state with a more conservative southwest a more liberal northeast and a middle that has both. There’s farming in the northwest and the southeast is more socially conservative. This man from Cincinnati is a Romney supporter.
(Voter) “I think that he’s proven, business leader businessman. Very successful.”
But this man says Barack Obama will win Ohio:
(Voter) “Because of the auto bailout and because they trust him. He’s been Commander in Chief for four years and I think we need to give him another shot.”
Roughly one-in-eight jobs here is tied to the auto industry.
Battleground Florida is ready for Election Day:
(Poll Worker) “As far as a equipment-wise, no problems.”
He runs a polling station in Broward County, just one county where confusing early voting and absentee ballot accepting led to lockouts, chaos and lawsuits by Democrats. Absentee voters had extra time Monday…
(Voter) “It’s a privilege, more than an obligation.”
…in a state where memories of balloting errors plague its 29 electoral votes.

For such a small state, New Hampshire also packs a big political punch.
FOX News Radio’s Marga Bessette reports on why it’s so important every election cycle:
New Hampshire elects presidents. Candidates have said it. So have the pundits, even the critics. Every election cycle New Hampshire becomes a political yo-yo, sometimes a red state, sometimes blue. That’s why candidates keep coming back. Often, because those four electoral votes can make or break their success. We voted for George Bush in 2000 and Obama in 2008. 2012: anyone’s guess. Virtually every poll puts President Obama and Mitt Romney in a statistical dead heat.

How important is Pennsylvania, in the race to the White House? If the past ten days are any indicator, it looks to be vital to Republicans.
Bob Hauer, with FOX affiliate WHP, has more, from Harrisburg:
Since the start of last week, the Republican party sunk millions and millions of dollars into a media blitz, trying to sway any undecided voters their way in the presidential election. The Romney, Ryan slate also went wheels down across the Commonwealth, ending with Mitt Romney stumping before 25,000 outside Philly Sunday night.
(Romney) “He’s hoping we’ll settle. Americans don’t settle. We build. We aspire. We dream. We listen to that voice that says we can do better.”
Democrats called that a sign of desperation since PA hasn’t been red for a presidential election since 1988. Still, former President Bill Clinton ran the anchor lap for the Dems by stopping in Philly, Pittsburgh and Scranton on Monday.
