Clinton Casts Her Ballot: 'It Is the Most Humbling Feeling'

- The symbol of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign has been shattering that proverbial glass ceiling.

The gracious sentiment was a far cry from Trump's usually heated rhetoric about Clinton.

A small group of staffers were seen walking in the The New Yorker hotel Wednesday morning, including Dennis Cheng, Clinton's finance director.

The Democratic candidate opened her election night party up to the public, with hundreds lining up on November 7 to score tickets to the November 8 event in New York City.

Her supporters were increasingly despondent as they watched key swing states Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida go for Republican Donald Trump on Tuesday night.

With election night underway, Clinton supporters watch on despairingly at her election night rally in Manhattan as the results come in.

Supporters wait to greet Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton at her polling place in Chappaqua, N.Y., Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016.

Casting her ballot at an elementary school near her home in suburban NY on Tuesday morning, Clinton acknowledged the weight of the day, saying: " so many people are counting on the outcome of this election". "I just can't even imagine what a Trump presidency would look like".

"They're still counting votes and every vote should count", he told an emotional crowd lingering at Clinton's election night event.

Members of the public waiting in anticipation in all U.S. states - and around the world - watched on through the night as the results of one of the most contentious elections to date began to roll in.

Tim Kaine, Clinton said she had offered to work with Trump on behalf of a country that she acknowledged was "more deeply divided than we thought".

A number of New York politicians and top campaign surrogates were expected to speak, including New York Gov. They said they felt good about Nevada, where they said support for Clinton in early voting was strong. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand and singer Katy Perry.

Clinton called Trump after it became clear that he had won enough states to capture the White House.

Her subdued Election Day was a stark contrast from Clinton's hectic final days on the campaign trail.

The tumultuous presidential cycle bequeathed a series of political gifts for Clinton's GOP rival: An FBI investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server, questions of pay-for-play involving her family's charitable foundation, Sanders' primary challenge, Clinton's health scare at a September 11 memorial ceremony and FBI Director James Comey's late October announcement that investigators had uncovered emails potentially relevant to her email case. That's about 18 percent of the expected total votes for president.
