NEW YORK CITY, N.Y (KRQE) – After 18 months of rallies, debates, scandals, and controversies, the campaign is just about over.

At this time Tuesday night, Americans could know who the next President of the United States will be.

Until the polls open Tuesday, presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are trying to reach as many voters as they can in key states.

Some of the biggest stars in politics and pop culture joined Hillary Clinton at Independence Hall for a last-minute push for votes in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.

“I believe that America’s best days are ahead of us, if reach for them together,” said Clinton.

Clinton will hold another star-studded rally at midnight in North Carolina where she is tied with Donald Trump.

Trump also campaigned in Raleigh.

“And now it’s up to American people..” said Trump in Raleigh.

Trump needs the state’s electoral votes to help him win the White House. Trump’s final-day tour of five battleground states, ends Monday night in Michigan with running mate Mike Pence.

“With your vote, we are just one day away for change waiting for your entire life,” said Trump.

Clinton has an advantage in the electoral college, thanks to reliably democratic states – something Trump will need to overcome.

“What he’s got to do is flip places like Florida for himself, like Ohio, and then also not just North Carolina, but also one of those reliably blue states,” explained Anthony Salvanto, CBS News Elections Director.

The public will know how some of those states will go when the polls start closing at 7 p.m. Eastern Time Tuesday.

Both presidential candidates will watch the Election Night returns in New York City.  Clinton headquarters will be at the Javits Convention Center andTrump’s will be at a hotel about a mile away.
