Space at the polling station
At a junior high school in Arlington, southern Virginia, about 50 people lineed up at the start of voting at 6 a.m. on March 3.
Because of the new coronavirus, voters were walking into the polls and throwing one vote, spaced along the signs written at their feet.

President Trump on the phone on FOX News
President Trump, who appeared on a FOX News program by telephone on March 3 after it was reported that President Trump would declare victory before many turned out in the U.S. presidential election, was asked, “When are you going to declare victory?”
“It’s time to win. We’ll win. Declare victory only when you win. You don’t have to do anything stupid.”
(11:00 p.m. Japan time)
Voting has begun.
The U.S. presidential election began at 8 p.m. Japan time, with voting starting in states such as Eastern New York and Southern Virginia.
As the spread of the new coronavirus continues and social divisions deepen more than before, the world’s attention is focused on whether President Trump will be re-elected or former Vice President Biden, a Democrat, will retake power.
